Each year in our Season for Sharing campaign, we ask Arizona to give back to our great community, and each year, you don’t disappoint.
Your contributions — in addition to funds from matching partners the Gannett Foundation, BillingTree, the Nina Mason Pulliam Trust, 12News and The Arizona Republic — totaled $2,730,000 to be awarded to 144 community organizations, and, for that, we want to say thank you.

Contributions are matched 50 cents on the dollar until donations reach $1 million, and The Republic covers all administrative costs, so 100 percent of all donations go directly to local nonprofits.
To celebrate this year’s Season for Sharing success, we are officially designating Thursday, March 17, 2016, as the third annual Thank You Thursday.
On this day, we at The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com, in partnership with 12News, offer sincere thanks and gratitude to each and every person who made a difference through our Season for Sharing campaign by donating.
