Make a gift NOW for Amplify Austin Day to support the Headwaters Financial Aid Program. Amplify Austin Day is from 6pm on February 28th – 6pm on March 1st. Gifts are matched by I Live Here I Give Here, and others. Click here to donate. You can make a gift to support educational opportunity at our school at any time between now and 6pm on March 1.
Create your own online Amplify Austin Day webpage and rally for educational opportunity and socio-economic diversity on behalf of our community. With your unique campaign you can encourage your friends and family to help you reach your own fundraising goal! Spread the word and encourage others to support more accessibility for the Headwaters educational experience.  It takes less than 5 minutes to set up your own fundraiser page. Just click here.
I Live Here I Give Here, the organization which brings together over 800 non-profits for Amplify Austin Day, raises millions of dollars for the stretch fund which gets distributed to each participating non-profit based on how much they raise.
We also have families who match donations throughout the campaign. Contact Keelan if you are interested in providing a matching gift to inspire others' generosity.
Many employers also match Amplify Austin donations –– check here to see if yours does.
