Jersey Shore Arts Center Celebrates GivingTuesday with JSAC Holiday Fund Drive, joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement on December 1, 2020
Ocean Grove, November 20, 2020– This GivingTuesday, Jersey Shore Arts Center will inspire generosity by raising funds for our capital projects and 2021 programs.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
Though the Jersey Shore Arts Center (JSAC) was closed to the public from March to late August, the organization has not sat still.
- JSAC raised over $2,500 during the month of May of this year.
- We partnered with local community groups and assisted with programs that supported people in need.
- JSAC raised $1,200 to produce a Free Halloween Trunk or Treat event and Outdoor Movie that communities were able o safely gather and participate in.
- JSAC completed its restoration project of the West and East Buildouts, refurbished the outside marquee sign panels and provided affordable studio and performance space to local artists and performers.
“The most important mission of the Jersey Shore Arts Center is to engage the community with the importance of the arts to society.” - Nichole Nappi, Executive Director, Jersey Shore Arts Center
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
"GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year." said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. "With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world."
