I Live Here I Give Here is a community-focused organization with a goal to inspire people to give locally! Our mission is to cultivate the power of giving back through a unique set of products and services designed to connect Central Texas with the causes they care about. We focus on the new and emerging donor through integrated and effective tools with proven impact, like AmplifyATX.org, Giving Tuesday, and Amplify Austin Day.
We are working hard to ensure that Amplify Austin continues to make giving back to Central Texas nonprofits fun and impactful. We are expecting tens of thousands of donors to participate in Amplify Austin this year and we appreciate your efforts to improve the quality of life for all Central Texans.
Beyond Amplify Austin Day, be on the lookout for our other signature events: Giving Tuesday, See Jane Give, Give Back Jack, Austin Involved Board Internship Program and The BIG Give.

"Amplify Austin allows donors to be a part of something massive with direct impact on their own community. The experience drives excitement about how one simple gift can be magnified by the power of group giving. People feel good about giving, those in need get help, everybody wins. This year's Amplify Austin will provide the equivalent of 40,000+ meals to folks who really need it."

It [Amplify Austin] was a moment that future historians should note writing about the development of modern Austin. It's not a Capitol fire or a school desegregation order, but what Amplify Austin has in common with those events is that they test a city's character.
