Show your love for Texas bats by hosting a fundraiser for Austin Bat Refuge via the website of I Live Here, I Give Here (Amplify Austin)!
Fundraisers will help pay for bat education events for under-served communities in our area.
The big day of giving for Amplify Austin is 24 hrs from 6pm March 1 to 6 pm March 2 and we’re ramping up for it right now!
(Fundraisers can be hosted all year round using their site, but March 1st is the when gifts can be easily Amplified)
Individual fundraisers – If you’d like to help local bats, but can’t volunteer in person, here’s how:
Go to our Amplify Austin webpage and click the Create Campaign Page button. Learn About Fundraising Campaigns.
Here’s an Individual Fundraiser Toolkit you can use to get started.
Our intern Kyndal hosted one in 2017 called “Save the Skypuppies” and she raised enough to purchase an incubator for newborn bat pups!
Big non-profits have hundreds of individual fundraisers; we’d love to have a handful!
Business fundraisers – Bring your business’s volunteer group to The Refuge to Meet the Bats, then collaborate on a business fundraiser for Austin Bat Refuge! Here’s how:
Go to our Amplify Austin webpage and click the Create Campaign Page button. In addition to the Individual Fundraiser Toolkit and the Learn About Fundraising Campaigns, there’s a Business Fundraiser One-Pager you can use to get started!
Group fundraisers – Bring your group to the Refuge, then brainstorm on ways to help the magnificent yet maligned creatures you will meet. Go to our Amplify Austin webpage and click the Create Campaign Page button. Check out the Learn About Fundraising Campaigns link. In addition to the previous toolkits, check this out Ideas for Groups
