Since its origin in 2011, Spring2ACTion has raised more than $10 million dollars for 160 nonprofits, making it one of the most successful city-wide giving days in the country. And despite the unforeseen challenges of this year, the 2020 giving day was no different.
In response to the community needs around the COVID-19 coronavirus, ACT for Alexandria moved up it’s annual day of giving. While ALX Community was proud to be the 2020 host of Spring2Action, we were even more proud of the online results. Last month, the Alexandria community banded together to raise a record breaking 2.45 million. In fact, ACT for Alexandria raised almost $400,000 more than they did last year. In this time of change and uncertainty, our community was able to rally around a common cause: helping each other. It was quite the feat for the tradition’s 10-year anniversary.
