SPARTANBURG, SC - November 14th, 2017 - Chapman Cultural Center has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season.
Chapman Cultural Center, Spartanburg's local arts agency, is igniting the creative vibrancy in our community! Funding dance, music, theatre, arts, science, and history with critical operating support; serving 51 additional Spartanburg County nonprofit organizations and pays over 100 local artists, Chapman Cultural Center relies on gifts from donors to fuel their mission of providing cultural leadership in Spartanburg County.
The organization will be hosting Facebook Live videos during the 12 hour campaign to encourage supporters to donate $5 or more. From mobile giving and online donations to stopping by the center to deliver your gift, there are several easy and convenient ways to give during Giving Tuesday.
"We're so excited to be participating in Giving Tuesday this year. We have a big vision and important work to do in school districts in Spartanburg County of providing STEAM education to those who need it most," says Jennifer Evins, President and CEO of Chapman Cultural Center. "No gift is too small. Every dollar is put to good use right here in Spartanburg County."
In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
