#GivingTuesday

GivingTuesdayBlogHEader

December 1, 2015 is #GivingTuesday…a global movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday connects individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

As you plan YOUR charitable year-end giving, please consider including Music for All!

Your gift will strengthen our ability to deliver our nationally recognized programs that support the efforts of music teachers on the high school and middle school levels, as well as provide positively life-changing experiences for students.

On #GivingTuesday please help us ensure that every child across America has access and opportunity to participate in active music making in his or her scholastic environment by making a gift to Music for All!
