What is #GivingTuesday?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with over $117M in online donations received in 2015 alone!
The Academy Center of the Arts is participating in this year’s #GivingTuesday on November 29th with all donations being applied to our Scholarship Fund. Your support allows us to tangibly impact those in need by making the arts and its benefits more accessible.
Many citizens throughout Central Virginia do not have the means to afford arts programming without assistance. The Academy understands this reality and works to ensure the accessibility of the arts by providing scholarships to those in need. Our partial and full scholarships allow people to partake in diverse arts offerings ranging from theatre camps to iPad animation classes. Last year 691 people in our community were awarded Academy scholarships thanks to the generosity of donors like you!
Please join with us to provide the gift of the arts to others in our community! Please donate to the Academy Scholarship Fund on Tuesday, November 29th!
