ACT for Alexandria

Get Ready to Give! Spring2ACTion Is Only a Few Months Away!

Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s Giving Day, is Wednesday, April 10, 2019. 

Ready, set, give!  Spring2ACTion is an online giving event that connects local donors with Alexandria nonprofits.  Spring2ACTion inspires Alexandrians and their neighbors to make a difference by connecting them with causes they care about on an easy-to-use platform where they can donate to nonprofits in their community.  Since 2011, 55,000 generous donors, like you, have given more than $8 million dollars to more than 160 nonprofits through Spring2ACTion, making it one of the most successful city-wide giving days in the country!
