ACT for Alexandria has decided to move up Spring2ACTion to April 15, 2020, with Early Giving opening on Friday, April 3. During this unprecedented time, we feel change is necessary to meet the current needs of our community. This move is to meet the immediate and urgent needs of our nonprofit sector while providing an immediate call to action to our generous community.
Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s Giving Day, is the time Alexandrians come together, uplift one another, and support the organizations that serve our community in the best of times and during challenging times. This giving day has become an indispensable platform for local nonprofits to engage the community and raise critical funding. Because of the current crisis, we know many nonprofits have cancelled fundraising events and programs that generate revenue. Classrooms and theaters are dark, and programs are cancelled in adherence of social distancing guidelines. Nonprofits are depleting their reserves to purchase emergency food and supplies for their constituents. The financial health of nonprofits is threatened at a time when our community needs them the most.
For the past ten years, Alexandrians have come together to show their support for the community they love. Since 2011, more than 65,000 generous donors have given more than $10 million to more than 165 nonprofits through Spring2ACTion. When we come together again on April 15th, we know generosity will shine.
