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, November 28, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity.
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 the MMFA on #GivingTuesday, your donation will be matched by philanthropists Corinna and Barry Wilson.
Your gift will directly impact the Museum’s mission. 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 Wares Ferry Elementary School. Your gifts will also be used to present exciting special exhibitions like Transformart. Additionally, private funds support the care of our permanent collections, helping us leave a legacy for to future residence of the River Region.
Most importantly, your donations enable the MMFA to remain a free attraction to Montgomery area residents and visitors from around the U.S. and the world, allowing all families to enjoy new cultural experiences regardless of income.

This season, keep the holiday spirit and the MMFA in your heART.
