"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."
-Dan Pruett, President and CEO -Meals on Wheels and More
"During this remarkable fundraiser, generous animal lovers came together and raised over $83,000 for the Animal Trustees of Austin! We are thrilled to tell you that 284 of these donors are brand new to our organization!"
-Missy McCullough, Executive Director - Animal Trustees of Austin
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.
