#GivingTuesday is an international day of giving that takes place following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, and will be held on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. Started in 2012, #GivingTuesday has taken hold as a charitable counterpoint to the consumerism of the holiday season, and feels even more pertinent this year given the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
As a nonprofit art center, First City relies heavily on donations and fundraising events to keep our community-centered programs running, including our Youth Art Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for our summer camp, after school, and High School Mentorship programs.
This year, FCAC is dedicating 10% of funds raised on Giving Tuesday towards our Hot Glass for Heroes scholarship fund, to provide glassblowing scholarships for veteran and active duty service members.
Want to help us continue to give back year round?
Join us on Tuesday, December 1st and show your support by making a monetary donation, making an in-kind donation of supplies, signing up to volunteer at our next fundraising event, or by sharing what FCAC’s programs mean to you and helping to spread the word!
