On April 2, Casa Grande Main Street will join Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from around the state, to raise much-needed funds for future maintenance of the Casa Grande Neon Sign Park.
Through azgives.org, Arizonans will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for 24 hours of virtual giving as the nonprofits strive for additional cash-incentive prizes by promoting and generating donations at various levels. Sponsored by FirstBank, this annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state.
Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide single day of giving that invites Arizonans to find their favorite causes and donate day of or to schedule their donations in advance. Hosted by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum, Arizona Gives Day has raised $13.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since its founding in 2013.
This year’s Arizona Gives campaign is a partnership between Casa Grande Main Street and Casa Grande’s Historic Preservation Commission, celebrating the completion of the Casa Grande Neon Sign Park and establishing a planned-giving fund to support future repairs and maintenance of the park and its iconic treasures.
Local businesses and community members, including APS, Casa Grande Dispatch and Cook E Jar, have already stepped up to sponsor the campaign and events. Here’s how you can support the campaign:
Bring an entourage to our Spaghetti Western Night on April 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the Main Street Patio/Alley, where you’ll get a sneak preview of the park, and we’ll share our vision for the future.
