We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals; Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company, or your organization to give a little bit more—share, inspire, make a difference.
Of course if you need help figuring out where you can donate your time or money, we want you to consider the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. When you make a gift to MMFA #GivingTuesday, your donation will be matched by philanthropists Corinna and Barry Wilson. In addition, because our community provides the majority of operating costs for the Museum through the City of Montgomery, your gift can be used for the stuff that really has an immediate impact!
For example, your money will provide educational programs both here at the Museum and in underserved areas of the community like the Alabama Department of Youth Services’ Mt. Meigs Campus, and at E.D. Nixon Community Center. Your gifts will also be used to present exciting special exhibitions like Once & Again: Still Lifes by Beth Lipman. Additionally, private funds support the Museum’s important core mission—care of our permanent collections, as well as the scholarship that enhances our ability to utilize the collections for students and other visitors.
Most importantly, your donations continue to enable the MMFA to remain a free attraction to Montgomery area residents and visitors from around the U.S. and the world. This allows all families to enjoy new cultural experiences regardless of income.

This season, keep the most authentic and truly meaningful holiday spirit in your heART, and find a way to give back to your community on #GivingTuesday. We hope when you’re making those plans, you’ll put the MMFA at the top of your list!
