The Superstition Mountain Museum will be joining in Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from all over the state on Tuesday, April 4, to raise much-needed funds. Through azgives.org, Arizonans will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for exactly 24 hours of virtual giving to strive for additional cash incentive prizes. Sponsored by FirstBank, this 5th annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state. Hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum and presented by FirstBank, Arizona Gives Day has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.
“We are pleased to be involved with Arizona Gives Day this year for the first time,” said Museum Director Liz Nicklus. “It is a great way to draw attention to the needs of the many non-profit organizations who, like us, rely heavily on donations to keep operating.”
Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide single day of giving that invites Arizonans to find their favorite causes at azgives.org on April 4, 2017, and donate day-of or schedule their donations in advance. It is a statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign that takes place the first Tuesday of April each year.
This event helps people find, learn about and contribute to the causes they believe in. Arizona Gives Day also enables nonprofits to share their stories and engage the community through a unique online giving platform.
From 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 4, supporters of the Superstition Mountain Museum can go to azgives.org and select the museum to make a direct contribution. Donations are crucial to helping fund our museum throughout the year as the museum and the historical society take no public monies.
Though Arizona Gives Day only happens once a year, this website is available for year-round giving with the purpose of building the spirit of philanthropy throughout Arizona’s communities.
The Superstition Mountain Museum is the realization of a dream shared by several individuals who formed the Superstition Mountain Historical Society, Inc. in 1980. This organization is a non-profit corporation under Section 501 (c) 3, organized to collect and preserve the history, legends and lore of Arizona’s Superstition Mountains, to support research, education and publication involving the region, and to develop a historical museum and research library devoted to these endeavors.
As the museum continues to grow and flourish it has become a hub of activity with people walking the grounds and visiting the many educational exhibits outside and in the museum gallery. Each season, the schedule is packed with special events, lectures, and classes.
