Giving Tuesday 2018
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
Unity Performing Arts Foundation is using this National Fundraising Tool to raise funds to purchase new uniforms for our World Champion Voices of Unity Youth Choir ($25,000 for 75 uniforms). We are utilizing this very kind and thought-provoking tool to celebrate a season of giving and sharing by using social media and web presence to illustrate the experiences our students have had while being a part of the program.
Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City − #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. “We are incredibly inspired by the way the #GivingTuesday community has embraced this concept for a worldwide movement,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and Executive Director of 92Y.
Unity Performing Arts Foundation is requesting that you consider donating your time, talent and treasure to an organization that you know has a proven track record for changing the lives of the youth in this community!
