When we open ourselves to art, we open ourselves to the world – to beauty, craft, to different cultures, to pain and pleasure, expression and emotion.

Two Ways to Give Forward with the Gibbes on #GivingTuesday

Giving Tuesday

The Gibbes is excited to participate in #GivingTuesday this year on November 29, 2016, and we invite you to join us!

#GivingTuesday is a global movement that kicks off the charitable giving season. This year, all #GivingTuesday donations will go toward helping us complete our Campaign for Excellence capital campaign for financial sustainability.

Here are two ways you can participate in #GivingTuesday to support the Gibbes:

1. Stop by the Museum for a visit and “round up” your admission or gift shop purchase or make a #GivingTuesday donation in person.

2. Make an online donation on or around #GivingTuesday and invite your friends to “Give Forward.”

Here are a few ways to issue a giving challenge:

Subject: Give Forward on #GivingTuesday

Dear XXX,

We’ve eaten all the turkey, we’ve shopped until we dropped, and now it is time to give!

In celebration of #GivingTuesday, I’m supporting the Gibbes Museum of Art.

Please join me by making an online donation today and challenging your friends and family to give forward.

The Gibbes Museum of Art recently reopened after an extensive renovation and is close to completing its capital campaign, which helped fund the renovation and will ensure long-term financial sustainability.

Let’s help the Gibbes finish strong in 2016!

Thank you,
