Arizona Gives Day

Arizona Gives Day is an annual giving movement uniting nonprofits, to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Arizona through online giving. The event helps raise awareness about the critical role Arizona nonprofits play in our communities and inspires people to give generously creating a thriving and stronger Arizona for all.

About the celebration

Everyone who donates $25 or more to Heritage Square for Arizona Gives Day will receive access to our special Gin & Jazz Preservation Party celebration on Tuesday, April 6th! Coming to you virtually this year from across Phoenix and even all the way from China (!!), this year’s event features all the Roaring ’20s  fun you love – learn from a bartender how to make a Prohibition Era cocktail, watch the dreamy dancing of the Dapper Manns, and catch syncopated rhythms straight from the Ghost Lounge at Hotel San Carlos. And don’t forget our special, virtual talk about Prohibition in Arizona on Friday, March 19th at noon – Temperance & Trapdoors: Prohibition & the Rosson House Museum.

All of this is possible because of support from you and from our community! Make you your Arizona Gives Day donation to Heritage Square by clicking the button below.
