Respondents to An Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits survey of nonprofit organizations statewide shows that almost 90 percent have been or expect to be significantly impacted by the spread of COVID-19. As of March 20, that put the projected loss of revenue at $29,946,350, much of the loss from canceled events. In addition, the coronavirus has caused a disruption of services to clients and communities.
Expanded support from the day includes:
- An Emergency Relief Fund giving donors the option to increase donations as an add-on at checkout or through direct donation at azgives.org/aznonprofits. All funds will be distributed equally among participating nonprofits.
- Re-opening registration to allow organizations that had to cancel fundraisers, programs and other events that originally chose not to participate to be able to benefit from the fundraiser. The new registration deadline is March 27.
- A group of donors has provided separate funding enabling the Alliance to waive payment processing fees normally paid by nonprofits participating in Arizona Gives Day, allowing more funds to go directly to the nonprofits.
Since 2013, Arizona Gives Day has generated $17 million in donations to Arizona nonprofits with $3.6 million donated in 2019.
