Lorenz & Lorenz is proudly taking part in Amplify Austin Day, which takes place from March 4-5. This is also known as Central Texas’ annual day of giving. Donations support nearly 700 nonprofits that are in critical need, including nonprofits dedicated to winter storm disaster relief and recovery.

In 2020, businesses that took part in Amplify Austin Day raised $1 million of the $112.3 million raised for local nonprofits.

This year, the ILHIGH Amplify: Disaster Relief Fund was created to help with recovery after the winter storms last month. Gifts to this fund support more than 130 organizations whose mission is related to one of the following categories:

  • Basic Needs
  • Disaster Relief
  • Emergency Response
  • Human Services
  • Housing, Shelter and Homelessness

There are various resources to help businesses get started with their campaign on the Amplify Austin website.

This includes:

  • Step-by-step guide to building a campaign profile
  • Tips on telling your business’ story
  • Sample emails to send to employees
  • Guide to using social media to help your campaign
  • Graphics
  • Public service announcements

This year, there will be a celebrity-driven virtual experience to help raise awareness. It is called Amplify LIVE. The lineup features business leaders, stories about local nonprofits, celebrities and musical performances.

Amplify Austin Day 2021 starts Thursday night.
