On March 4 and 5th, 330 nonprofits from all over Austin will take part in Amplify Austin, a community-wide day of giving with the goal of raising a $1 million in 24 hours. Modeled on successful events that have taken place in Colorado, San Diego, and Seattle, the goal is to inspire Central Texans to support the life-changing work of local nonprofits, and HAAM is excited to be taking part.
The event kicks off at 7pm on March 4th, as HAAM’s biggest fans there are several easy ways you can show your support during Amplify Austin.
Create an individual fundraising page: [This feature is no longer available]
This is similar to fundraising pages you might see for a charitable run or walk. You will be able to send emails or messages to your friends asking them to get involved and donate to HAAM through this page. It takes around five minutes to set up, and you can see HAAM Executive Director Carolyn Schwarz’s page here.
Help us promote Amplify Austin on social media. On Monday, March 4 HAAM is going to post an image promoting HAAM and Amplify Austin on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Please mark your calendar and share the photos… There may even be a surprise video, make sure you check in on Monday the 4th to find out.
Consider making a donation to HAAM. Through a great opportunity with the St. David’s Foundation and Amplify Austin HAAM can receive matching funds based on the amount of money raised from the community on March 4th and 5th. If each of you can rally your friends and contacts to support HAAM we will maximize the amount we raise to support musicians’ healthcare.
Remember, every dollar you help raise for HAAM turns into $7 in critical healthcare services that help keep hard-working musicians healthy. We have ambitious goals, but you can help make them happen!

Thank you for helping keep Austin music alive and well!
