Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to get out those credit cards, checkbooks, bitcoin logins (just kidding) or whatever else you got and get really, really generous with you Central Texas charities. Amplify Austin, that time of year when your donation to local nonprofits gets multiplied by a combination of generous supporters, is upon us.
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Austin.com calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
For 24 hours, your donation to any of more than 700 charities can be amplified through matches by sponsors, grand prize matches, and hourly boosts.
