Amplify Austin

Amplify Austin, our city’s annual day of giving, is quickly approaching! Last year, Austinites raised over $1.53 million in donations, matching funds, prizes, and incentives for the nonprofit organizations in our city. Can we top that in 2019? Join us for a 24-hour fast and furious fundraising campaign February 28 - March 1, 2019.

What's new?

With the Legislature back in session it’s going to be a big year for CTD, and we are counting on your support! Our priority areas at the Capitol include community services, dental care access for adults with disabilities on Medicaid, accessibility in new public transit systems, reforming special education, medical marijuana, and a raise for community attendants. And we’ll play a supporting role on many other policy issues of interest to Texans with disabilities.

In addition, we’ll continue raising awareness about living with a disability all year long through our arts programs: Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival, Pen 2 Paper creative writing contest, and Lion & Pirate open mic series.

Your financial support allows us to focus on what we do best: fighting for policies that benefit and protect Texans with disabilities as we blaze our own trail to make sure our voices are heard! Plus, as a St. David's Foundation grantee, we are eligible for the St. David's Foundation $1 million match*! The more you give, the higher the match!

*St. David's Foundation is partnering with I Live Here I Give Here to match donations up to $1 million to their grant partners on Amplify Austin Day. The more donations that a nonprofit receives, the more bonus funds they win. This match is furthering the mission of the foundation to make Austin the healthiest community in the world!
