ACT for Alexandria has announced that Spring2ACTion, an online giving day originally scheduled for April 29, will now take place April 15 in an effort to meet immediate community needs in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Early giving opportunities will begin April 3.
“Alexandria’s nonprofits are on the front lines in responding to this public health crisis,” said Heather Peeler, ACT for Alexandria President and CEO, in a statement announcing the change. “Like many small businesses, nonprofits are facing an existential financial threat. Through Spring2ACTion they can raise the critical funds they need to purchase supplies, pay rent and reconfigure their programs and services to support our neighbors in need.”
Since its inception in 2011, the online giving day has raised more than $10 million for local nonprofits. Last year Spring2ACTion raised $2 million and has set a goal of $2.2 million for 2020. While Spring2ACTion has historically featured in-person events in addition to online giving, this year all activities will take place virtually.
