05-Mar-2015Amplify Austin 2015
Austin 2015 is
almost one week away and we need your help to make this year even
better than 2014! We have just 24 hours to donate during Amplify
Austin, March 5 6PM through March 6, 6PM.
By donating to ACO through Amplify Austin, your dollars will be amplified and your giving increased through the generosity of local business partners. Click this link to learn more and to start your fundraising campaign today.
By giving to ACO, you'll be ensuring we will be able to continue to offer free tickets to youth 18 and under. As a direct result of your past and generous support, we are pleased to report that between 15% and 20% of our audiences are now made up of this group of new classical music aficionados! By continuing to influence the next generation, we are securing a city and a country that possess a deep appreciation and understanding of the fine arts. This cultural development will produce benefits for our community for years to come.
Here are 4 easy things you can do to help:
Set your alarm to make a donation to ACO during our “Power Hour” on March 5th from 6 PM until 7 PM. A bonus is awarded every hour of Amplify Austin to the nonprofit that raises more money than any other participating nonprofit.
If you’re too busy or don’t trust your alarm, pre-schedule your donation and then just forget about it! You can go to this site, set up your donation checking the ‘Schedule for Amplify Austin Day’ box, and then relax. Your donation will automatically be made to ACO during the fundraising period.
Become a fundraiser for ACO! It’s easy – just go here and click on the ‘Create a Fundraising Campaign’ box. Fill out the form and ask your family and friends to donate to ACO through your campaign. You could help win extra cash for ACO if you raise more money than the other fundraisers or if ACO has more fundraisers than the other nonprofits.
Tell your family and friends that ACO is participating in Amplify Austin 2015. Ask them to please consider ACO for their tax-deductible donations. If you can get just 10 friends to commit to donating $5, we'll be well on our way to breaking our fundraising goal!
