Amplify Austin Day is an annual day of giving hosted by I Live Here I Give Here (ILHIGH), a local non-profit organization. This 24-hour giving period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to support hundreds of non-profits in Central Texas! Together, 34,415 donors raised $12.5 Million for 760 Central Texas nonprofits in 2021. Over the past nine years, Amplify Austin Day has raised $81.5 Million in critical unrestricted funds for our nonprofit sector.

30 Years of People + Parks

This year, Austin Parks Foundation celebrates 30 years of enhancing people’s lives by improving our city’s public parks, trails and green spaces. As we celebrate three decades of connecting people and parks, we need your help to continue our work!

APF is rolling up our sleeves and diving into some very special park projects in 2022. These include the grand opening of the Zilker Eagle Mini Train, major park improvement projects at Pomerleau, Alderbrook and Govalle Parks, as well as kicking off our second phase of improvements at Little Walnut Creek Greenbelt.

We couldn’t have reached any of these goals or milestones without the tremendous support of our volunteers, park advocates and community of generous donors like you. Thank you for supporting our work in parks, trails and green spaces across Austin. In celebration of our 30th anniversary, we're giving all donors that give more than $30 a limited, commemorative lapel pin!

Austin's Parks + Trails Need You
