Amplify Austin Day is our city’s annual day of giving. These 24 hours of generosity provide an easy and fun way for our community to give together, building transformative collective impact for more than 700 local nonprofits. Together, individuals, families, and businesses raised $12.3 million for 760 Central Texas nonprofits in 2020. Over the past eight years, Amplify Austin Day has raised $69 million in critical, unrestricted funds for our nonprofit sector.
Please join our campaign to raise $15,000 for The Junior League of Austin’s Signature Programs: Coats for Kids, FIT – Food in Tummies, and KICS – Kids in Cool Shoes.
Your support will help provide:
- Up to 750 coats to distribute at Coats for Kids to help the children of Central Texas stay warm;
- Up to 3,000 FIT backpacks to Del Valle students suffering food insecurity; or
- Up to 750 new pairs of shoes to distribute through Kids in Cool Shoes to children in high-need Central Texas schools

Sample introduction: Hi friend, I just received this email from The Junior League of Austin (JLA), whose mission I support. Their signature programs help so many in the Central Texas community. It would mean a lot if you would check out their Amplify Austin page and support the JLA.
