Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) 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 to organizations that enrich our lives – organizations like Winter Opera.
This year we’re asking everyone to join us on November 28 for #GivingToonsDay by making an online gift to help the development of Operatoons, an educational video program for children. Your contributions will help your community and ensure the longevity of the artform we all love.
Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 by the end of the year, and #GivingTuesday inspires gifts of all sizes. We understand that many of our loyal donors give at a specific time of year. It is our hope to attract many new donors, and we ask our regular donors to give a special contribution in addition to their annual gift. Whether it’s a gift of $50 or $500, your gift will go a long way in helping Winter Opera ensure opera lives on for generations to come.
