Will there be bonus prizes? Yes. Will there be matching dollars? You betcha! Will it be tons of fun and a super rewarding experience? Oh yeah!

What is Amplify Austin?

Amplify Austin is a powerful strategy by I Live Here, I Give Here to increase donations and awareness to local, Central Texas non-profits through a 24 hour online donation platform. Last year, through Amplify Austin, Central Texas non-profits were able to raise a collective 4 million dollars in just 24 hours. Now that's impressive.

Why Should You Donate Through Amplify Austin?

We're making a special appeal March 2 – March 3, 2022. This is the day to celebrate and support nonprofits in Central Texas that make this a better place for everyone to live. PLUS, your gift made through Amplify Austin will be boosted by incentive matching dollars. Your gift may also help PAWS win one of the four the grand prizes or hourly booster prizes during the 24-hour period!

How Do I Amplify the No-Kill Movement?

It's easy! Visit our Amplify Austin page and click the “DONATE” or “FUNDRAISE” button.
