AmplifyATX and AustinUP

AustinUP is proud to participate in this year’s AmplifyATX “I Live Here, I Give Here” campaign – it’s our first time! We’re excited about this opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help put Austin on the map when it comes to charitable giving. (Austin currently lags behind other major metropolitan areas in Texas, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.)

We need your help! Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of $2,500 and 50 donors! It’s a realistic goal that will help us raise the profile of older adults in our community. More specifically, your contributions will help us produce our 50+ job fairs that connect older job seekers with age-smart employers; expand livability and accessibility for older adults; and change perceptions about aging.

The actual day of giving begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 5th and ends at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 6th, but donations are being accepted now. Thank you for including AustinUP in your AmplifyATX giving plan!
