The Youth Development Emergency Relief Fund was established by the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) to support out-of-school time programs across the state as they respond to the impact of COVID-19 within our community.
This past April 7th, AzCASE celebrated our 30th anniversary by participating in Arizona Gives Day, an annual day of virtual giving that has raised over $17.1 million for Arizona nonprofits since 2013. All funds raised on our behalf during Arizona Gives Day were destined to go towards a new Youth Development Emergency Relief Fund.
We want to thank everyone who participated in #AZGivesDay during our full day of fundraising and information sharing with fantastic speakers throughout the day!
Thanks to those who contributed to the Youth Development Emergency Relief Fund–one hundred percent of contributions to this fund will be distributed to programs in need.
We understand that the need is bigger and we want to continue to ask for community support.
In our efforts to effectively support some of the most affected programs, AzCASE will participate in Giving Tuesday NOW. #GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
These efforts will be a collective fundraiser in collaboration with programs that are developing new and creative ways to support their youth community during these challenging times.
AzCASE will provide matching funds for up to $5,000 raised.
