April 3, 2018 is a big day — save the date!

Ballet Arizona will be participating in #AZGivesDay, a 24-hour day of statewide giving. Beginning in 2013, Arizona Gives Day started as a collaboration between the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum and has helped raise more than $10.1 million for Arizona’s nonprofit sector. Arizona Gives Day not only helps raise awareness about the variety of nonprofits around the state but shows the critical role they play in our communities. Arizona nonprofits do more than provide necessary services to our communities – they are an integral part of our state’s economy, contributing $22.4 billion annually and provide 325,000 jobs. Monetary donations are the most direct way to help a nonprofit make an impact and allow nonprofits to allocate funds where they are needed most. By donating you simultaneously invest in the future of Arizona and help nonprofits made an impact in your community.
