Presented by First Bank, Arizona Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraiser aimed at bringing together communities across the state, to raise awareness and financial support for a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona. Arizonans are encouraged to help make a difference by investing in the nonprofit of their choice.
“We’re excited to participate in the inaugural Arizona Gives Day” says Irene Agustin, Director of Fund Development for CASS, “this campaign provides an innovative opportunity to not only generate funding for the state’s nonprofits, but to also engage and educate the Arizona community on the work we do each day.”
