Amplify Austin raises over $5.7M for local non-profits

Posted: Updated:

The Amplify Austin donation drive wrapped up at 6 p.m. Friday night and it looks like good news for local non-profit organizations.

Preliminary numbers for the 24-hour effort show Central Texans donated more than $5.7 million. That is nearly $2 million more than the original goal.

The money goes toward nearly 500 local non-profits.

The Amplify Austin website shows more than 34,000 donations were made.
