Spring2ACTion is Almost Here!
Once a year, Alexandria nonprofits all come together for Spring2ACTion, an online “giving day” hosted by ACT for Alexandria, Alexandria’s community foundation. This year the big day is Wednesday, April 28.
As in previous years, you can contribute to the campaign in the two weeks leading up to the big day. The online portal will “go live” on April 14. If you prefer to contribute by check instead of doing so online, your gift will count toward our total if it is received in our office by April 28.
Last year’s Spring2ACTion campaign lacked the fanfare of previous years since it took place during the early days of the pandemic, so we did not have our usual in-person gathering at Del Ray Café on campaign day. We likely will forgo such a gathering this year, too – but we will carry on with the same spirit as always. Throughout this fundraiser, some generous AHA donors will offer a matching gift so that your online contribution will be doubled. If you would like to offer a matching gift to entice others to donate, we would gratefully welcome it.
Spring2ACTion is a highly effective and cost-efficient campaign for AHA. Watch for further updates and videos.
