Amplify Austin Day is Feb. 28, 2019, and we are excited to announce that Tony Foundation is participating! Please save this date, and let us tell you why: The donations we receive during that 24 hour period, from 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28 until 6:00 p.m. Friday, March 1, make us eligible for $1,000 and $5,000 prizes that would be added to our fundraising total to help families in need.

Tony Foundation plans to be on hand at several different venues around Austin on the evening of Feb. 28 to kick off Amplify and encourage people to donate during the campaign. We can’t wait to be a big part of this city-wide fundraising effort.  Read about last year’s Amplify in the Austin American-Statesman: “Amplify Austin 2018 Begins.”

If a company you own or work for would be interested in matching Tony Foundation donations during Amplify (up to a certain amount, decided by you/your company), please email us. This would be a great way to help increase our fundraising impact during the campaign.

Why is this important? The money we raise helps Tony Foundation assist families like Johnny and Briana (and their three sons). Please stay tuned here and our Facebook page for more info coming soon about TF and Amplify Austin.
