What is Spring2ACTion?

What if we all gave on one day? We can on April 5 for Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s giving day.

Spring2ACTion is a 24-hour online event that provides a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourages them to take action. This virtual fundraising effort, hosted by ACT for Alexandria with the help of generous sponsors,will offer local nonprofits the chance to raise thousands of dollars for the benefit of all Alexandria.

Last year, 8,316 donors raised $1,337,493 for 152 nonprofits serving Alexandria. And Free Agent Fundraisers raised $345,156 of that total!

What is a Free Agent Fundraiser?

Are you a board member, staff member, volunteer, or donor who wants to help your favorite nonprofit? You can be a Free Agent Fundraiser (FAF)!

A FAF is a champion for a cause, someone who wants to raise money for a specific charity. You may have seen this model with Team in Training and other races that ask people to raise money for them to be part of their team. Spring2ACTion allows you to take your fundraising to the next level.

Pick your charity, set a fundraising goal, create your online page and start asking your friends and family to support your fundraiser. As a Free Agent Fundraiser,you can help your favorite nonprofit a chance to win up to $50,000 in cash and prizes AND there is a live leaderboard for FAFs so you can compete for prizes too! All donations are tax-deductible.

The deadline to be included on the Free Agent Fundraiser Leader Board is Thursday, March 30. Please set up your fundraising page on Razoo by that date. If you participated as a FAF in the past, please let your nonprofit know you'd like to participate again and send them your Razoo FAF URL by March 30.
