What happens when a mini goal is successful?

Each mini goal will be Amplified! by our monthly donors and $1000 will be added to the total fundraising bucket on the road to $1 million dollars.

How will we know when a goal has been achieved?

Amplified! mini goals will be posted to socials, website updated, announced on-air (not necessarily in order).

How will donors be able to share which mini goal they are amplifying?

1) Make donation online
2) After you have you have made the donation, you will be prompted to make a musical suggestion, on that page you can also share your mini goal story by answering: Which mini goal are you amplifying with your donation today?

How many dollars do I need to donate to participate?

There is no minimum – we are encouraging the act of giving, not a specific dollar amount.

Am I limited to the number of mini goals I can support?

No, we welcome you to support as many mini goals as you wish; if a goal resonates with you, please consider making a donation.

What if I want to participate but don’t meet the requirements of the current mini goals?

Anyone can give, at any time. You can let your friends know if a mini goal may resonate with them – a great way to Play it Forward. You don’t have to wait for a mini goal.

Is Monthly Amplifiers the same as Double Your Dollars?

No. Monthly Amplifiers support giving by Amplifying Your Actions and Leadership DYD support giving by Doubling Your Dollars.

I have an idea for a mini goal, how can I share it?
