Today is Giving Tuesday! How Are You Giving Back?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world; it's a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity and equity around the globe.
As you know, ArtReach is an organization that supports community-based arts initiatives that engage youth from underserved populations. Our programs are open to young people 13-29 who face barriers to accessing meaningful, high-quality arts opportunities in the City of Toronto. In every way we can, we support youth by providing them with a platform for building, delivering, and engaging in community arts projects.
When you give to ArtReach, you’re investing in the thousands of youth artists and youth-lead organizations that engage in ArtReach programming. Organizations like Pretty Wings, a non-profit that offers free workshops for marginalized young people who self-identify as facing mental health challenges, survivors of abuse, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+, who are interested in pursuing dance as a creative outlet and career. Hear what the founder of Pretty Wings, Jena Alma has to say about the impact ArtReach has made on her program.
In order for us to continue delivering our high-impact work, ArtReach needs your help: we are currently working to raise the final $2020 of our fundraising goal before 2020. 2019 has been a difficult year for those in the arts and culture sector. With the availability of public funding drastically reduced, organizations like ours are facing severe challenges. We cannot continue to support the development of young artists and youth-lead organizations without donations from valuable ArtReach community members like you.
We ask you now to make a donation in support of ArtReach. We welcome contributions of any amount- every dollar helps. All gifts over $10 will be eligible to receive a tax receipt.
Making a donation is easy:
head to artreach.org/donate to give now!
Thank you for your continued support and your belief in the positive impact of our work,
Allie Harvey ArtReach Program Manager
