Help BCRC Rock the House during Amplify Austin!


We are thrilled to announce BCRC’s participation in Amplify Austin’s community-wide day of giving starting March 20th at 6pm until March 21st at 6pm!

Amplify Austin is a 24-hour online giving initiative presented by I Live Here I Give Here. Last year, your contributions made BCRC a huge success, raising over $35,000 from donors all across Central Texas and as far away as New York City!! BCRC also spent the entire 24-hour period ranked in the TOP FIVE on Amplify Austin’s 2013 Leaderboard - boosting our profile within the Austin community!!  

This year we want to come back BIGGER and STRONGER and we need YOUR help to Rock the House!!

Different Ways to Donate
While we encourage you to give you gift during the 24-hour giving-period, funds for BCRC can be raised anytime between February 1st and March 21st at 6pm. 

1. Give your gift during one of BCRC’s two “power hours” occurring within the 24-hour giving period. BCRC will announce our power hour times one week before via email and social media. This makes us eligible for additional prize money during the campaign. SEE BELOW.

2. Schedule* one-time donation ahead of time - ‘set it and forget it’ 

3. Schedule* automated recurring (daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly) donations for a specific amount

*NOTE: Scheduled gifts help BCRC be in the running for the $5,000 "Drum Solo" grand prize, but do NOT count toward BCRC's chance to win an hourly $1000 "Bass Booster" prize.


Every dollar you donate to BCRC through during this 24-hour period becomes almost two dollars! Your gift to BCRC will be amplified by incentive matching dollars from Amplify Austin’s generous sponsors, AND the St. David’s Foundation is once again providing an additional match of $.50 for every dollar we raise up to $150,000. 

Only funds donated from March 20 (6pm) to March 21 (6pm) will qualify for the incentive pool and prizes. Listed below are the different ways your donations during the 24-hour giving period will help us raise more money and drive BCRC to the top of the AmplifyATX Leaderboard!
