ACT for Alexandria

How Will You Spring2ACTion?

 

Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s Giving Day is Wednesday, April 10!  Hosted by ACT for Alexandria, Spring2ACTion is Alexandria’s biggest fundraising event, raising more than $8 million dollars since 2011, making it one of the most successful city-wide giving days in the country!  This year, April 10th is the day Alexandrians come together to give - spreading generosity in the community where we live, work and play. 

The first year of Spring2ACTion raised $104,156 for 47 nonprofits and last year, 9,438 donors raised $1,812,851 for 156 nonprofits serving Alexandria.  Our goal is for 10,000 donors to raise $2 Million Dollars for the 160 organizations helping to make Alexandria a strong, vibrant community for all.

Who can participate?

Everyone can give!  The power of this day is people.  This day is made possible because of people going online and supporting a cause that means something to them.  Whether you are giving $10, $100, or $1,000, when we give together, it is powerful. The minimum donation is $5, everyone can give $5 to a cause they care about. 

Why should I give?

This is the day to celebrate and support the nonprofits in Alexandria that make our city a better place for everyone to live.  Plus, your gift could be matched and help your favorite nonprofit win a prize!  Download an “I #Spring2ACTion because…” template and post it on social media to share with others about why you give.  If you’re new to giving, this is a great opportunity to find a new organization to support. 

Where should I give?

Your favorite nonprofit(s)!  Visit www.Spring2ACTion.org for a list of participating organizations.  You can also “Give to a Cause” – the options include Animals, Arts & Culture, Education, Health & Wellness, Homelessness and Housing, Poverty & Hunger, Seniors, Social Justice, and Youth. 

Online at www.Spring2ACTion.org – you can give through your computer or via your phone.  You can begin making donations on March 27 through Early Giving.  We believe giving is social and encourage you to attend one of the many Spring2ACTion events happening all over Alexandria.  Click here to see the calendar of events. 

When should I give?

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 is Spring2ACTion day!  While the official day for this online giving extravaganza is April 10, early giving starts on March 27.  It’s kind of like early voting, but much more fun because you can give EARLY and OFTEN! 

 

This day is about people.  We are coming together to ensure this community is strong and thriving for all!  Visit www.Spring2ACTion.org today and spread the love and generosity!
