2 Arizona Gives Day - Arizona Gives Day is a statewide, grassroots day of giving that will take place on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Join thousands of other Arizonans and “invest in Arizona” by donating to your favorite charities.

Go to azgives.org to donate. Search by specific locations or categories, such as “arts”, “animals” or “environment” to find your cause.

Vision
Arizona Gives Day connects causes and supporters in order to enrich and empower Arizona as a whole. The day also helps raise awareness about Arizona nonprofits and the important work they do in our community.

Goals
This year we plan to reach a greater number of individual donors, and hope to raise more than $3 million for nonprofits across our state. On April 5, we are asking Arizonans to donate to their favorite local cause. If each Arizonan gave just $1 we’d double our goal and raise over $6 million.

All donations made through the Arizona Gives Day website (azgives.org) are tax-deductible, may be matched, and are deposited directly into the bank accounts of the chosen nonprofits.

How to Support
In addition to online donations, Arizona Gives Day supporters can share information about the day and participating nonprofits via social media to help generate awareness and participation.

Use the #AZGivesDay hashtag and share content from our Twitter profile (twitter.com/azgives) and Facebook page (facebook.com/ArizonaGivesDay) to help spread the word.

Money Raised in Previous Arizona Gives Days
Since 2013, Arizona Gives Day has raised $4.5 million for nonprofits statewide. Last year, 573 Arizona nonprofits raised $2,054,417 through the generosity of 17,260 donors with many donors giving to multiple organizations. The average donation was $86.

Bonus Opportunities
Prize money is available for participating nonprofit organizations that raise the most money. Categories will be based on annual revenue size or whether an organization is an Alliance member. Six “Power Hours” will also be available during which winners will be determined by the number of $100+,
$50+ or $25+ donations received in a designated hour of the day.

Further Inquiry
Arizona Gives Day is organized by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum. FirstBank is the presenting sponsor of Arizona Gives Day.

31 Zeppelin USA (ZUSA) - Los Amigos Del Zorro is pleased to bring you, Zeppelin USA (ZUSA). Celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin, ZUSA is a 4-piece, non-costumed band that delivers the best of the Led Zeppelin studio sound and lives concert performances. The proceeds from the ZUSA event will benefit University of Arizona’s Steele Children’s Research Center.

"As someone who worked with Zeppelin back in the day of Atlantic Records, all I can say is, you close your eyes at a Zeppelin USA show, and you think...you're there." -Jerry Greenberg, former chairman of Atlantic Records

ZUSA is all about the music and spirit of Led Zeppelin. The members of ZUSA knew that in order to set themselves apart from the pack they had to choose a different path. To stand on the music only, they knew they were going to be judged hard in that respect. And so, they focus on getting the right tones, vocal inflections, borrowing a little from the studio versions here, the live versions there..

But they also believe in entertainment. The members of ZUSA are veteran musicians who've performed for tens of thousands of people. This is, after all, show business, and they go out of their way to engage and entertain their audience, no matter the size. Their larger venue shows are complete productions with huge video screens, low fog, lasers, state of the art lighting, and theatrics.

A Zeppelin USA show captures the sound and spirit of the greatest rock band of all time, and promises to either introduce or remind fans of just how great the mighty Zep will always be.
