Amplify Austin 2018
Amplify Austin is an annual, community-wide day of online giving that leverages the power of the entire community to support more than 600 non-profit organizations throughout Central Texas. The "Day of Giving" returns on March 1st at 6:00 p.m., and continues for 24 hours until 6:00 p.m. on March 2nd.
At AGE of Central Texas, falls prevention remains a key component of maintaining the health and well-being of the Central Texas senior community. Did you know:
- One in three Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
- Falls are the leading cause of death and injuries among older adults.
- The average medical cost of a fall is $19,440.
- An older adult dies every 20 minutes as the result of a fall.
So this year, we are asking you to help us prevent falls that can devastate members of our senior adult population.
CLICK HERE to make a donation and help AGE of Central Texas meet our goal of raising $40,000 this year!
Thursday, March 1st, from 11:00 p.m. to Midnight, we will be eligible for a $1,000 match if we can be the organization that raises the most in that hour. And through the generosity of some of our individual donors, we have secured more than $7,000 in matching funds -- and one of our most incredible supporters has even offered a match of up to 2% of their gross income! So if you are a night owl and can stay up until 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 1st, your gift can have even more impact!
CLICK HERE to Donate!
