We are proud to be participating in a big day of giving in our home base of Austin, Texas!
In just three short weeks, we’re joining 300+ nonprofits in the Capital City to raise at least $1 million for the organizations that make Austin, and Texas, great. Amplify Austin is a 24-hour day of giving, and we’d love for YOU to join us on that day by contributing to CPPP so we can continue making Texas a better place for all of us!

What is Amplify Austin?
Amplify Austin is a new 24-hour, online giving event to increase philanthropy in Central Texas. The first annual Amplify Austin event will begin Monday, March 4, 2013 at 7 p.m. Donations will be accepted through AmplifyATX.org and through an authorized AmplifyATX giving form located on our website www.cppp.org. (We’ll have more information on our site soon!) The goal is to inspire Central Texans to come together for 24 hours to contribute $1 million to support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations.
