Amplify Austin, the annual one-day celebration of donation for Central Texas, raised $48,644.17 for the Drive a Senior Network this year. Two hundred seventy individual donors contributed to the 2018 effort.
At the end of the day, Drive a Senior was:
- the second-highest recipient among small non-profit participants;
- ranked 32 among a total of 702 participating non-profits;
- raised the most money between 11 a.m. and noon on Friday, garnering a bonus of $1,000 from Amplify sponsor BB&T Bank.
Last year Drive a Senior provided 36,000 rides to more than 2500 of our senior neighbors. The funds we receive from Amplify will help us serve even more of the seniors in our Central Texas communities and increase the the number of rides we provide.
All told, Amplify Austin raised more than $10 million dollars in just 24 hours of concentrated giving.
