Amplify ATX

Amplify ATX is just around the corner and we are so excited to be participants once again!

Amplify is an all-day city-wide online giving event that gives backs to amazing organizations in the community. From 6pm March 1st to 6pm March 2nd we will have the opportunity to earn donations from supporters like you.

The deadline to create your fundraising page is 5 p.m Wednesday, February 28, but the sooner you get started, the sooner donations will start rolling in!

We’ve outlined the steps below:

1.Get Ready!

Before you begin, you’ll need a photo you can upload — this will be the “face” of your fundraising page. (hint: many people use pictures of themselves or their own pets.)

Write a brief summary of why you are asking for donations for Emancipet.

(Examples: You’re a client and know firsthand how Emancipet makes a difference in the lives of people and their pets — share a favorite story to show what a gift can do. You’re a longtime donor and have seen how the organization helps your community).

2. Set up Your Personal Fundraiser

If this is your first personal fundraiser for Amplify Austin, follow the instructions below for first-time fundraisers.

If you have set up a personal fundraiser during Amplify Austin before (even for another non-profit), you already have an account and can skip right to the instructions for returning fundraisers.

First-time Fundraiser Instructions

On the right side of the page, click on the green box that says “Create Campaign Page.” Because you are a new fundraiser, you’ll need to create a profile. To do this, click the blue “Create Profile” button just below the Amplify Austin logo.

Fill out the required fields and click “Create Profile” again.

From your account page, click on your name at the top of the screen, then click the “My Fundraisers” tab.

Click “Create New Fundraiser” and you’re ready to begin personalizing your fundraising page for Emancipet.

  • Returning Fundraiser Instructions

Go to https://amplifyatx.ilivehereigivehere.org/emancipet

On the right side of the page, click on the green box that says “Create Campaign Page.”

Because you’ve had a campaign page before, all you have to do is sign in!

From your account page, click on your name at the top of the screen, then click the “My Fundraisers” tab.

Click “Create New Fundraiser,” and you’re ready to begin personalizing your fundraising page for Emancipet.

3. Personalize Your Fundraiser

Follow the simple steps to personalizing your campaign. This is where you will enter the description you wrote earlier about why Emancipet is your cause.

Set a financial goal. Aim high!

Upload the picture you chose earlier and any other required information.

Click “Submit Fundraiser for Approval.”

(Note: Your page will be reviewed by Emancipet before it goes live, so don’t panic if you left something out or made a mistake!)

4. Tell the World You Are an Emancipet Champion!

Once your page is approved, it can be viewed by the public.

Start sharing it like crazy on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, whichever platform(s) you like best.

To maximize your reach, always tag Emancipet and include the hashtag #AmplifyATX in your posts.

 

Get creative! Here are some ideas:

Post a short video about why you love Emancipet (and if any of your pets want to star in their own video, even better!)

Share pet photos

Pose with a message on a whiteboard or piece of poster board—and be sure to tag Emancipet and #AmplifyATX

Get your friends together for a group photo
