Amplify Austin is our city’s annual community-wide day of online giving, with our community donating $12.3 million in 2020 for hundreds of nonprofits. This 24 hours period of online giving provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping nonprofits.
Thank you for your donation and supporting the work of the Salvation Army through the 2020 Amplify Austin. Last year we raised $31,335 through the generosity of 157 donors, allowing us to receive the entire matching grant from Carl C. and Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation of $30,000. Your support during Amplify Austin makes a major impact on the lives of people who need it the most in our community.
We are all one crisis away from needing a helping hand. The people we serve are daughters, sons, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, neighbors, teachers, business owners and friends that have experienced that crisis, and now they need the HAND UP that we can provide.
Inspired by our Christian mission, we offer the resources and support to lift up our neighbors in crisis. As the largest provider of emergency shelter in Central Texas, annually we serve more than 100,000 men, women, and children with shelter, addiction rehabilitation, clothing, meals, holiday support, and direct client assistance. We case manage hundreds from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.
