Giving Tuesday Results!
Thank you! Between gifts given through Facebook and our website, you helped Fenimore Art Museum raise $22,170 yesterday on #GivingTuesday!
On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum will celebrate Giving Tuesday with nonprofits across the nation. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the U.S. and in close proximity with the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Every donation made will be matched up to a total of $10,000 by a generous anonymous donor, doubling the impact of each contribution. This match will be applied to all gifts received by both museums from now until #GivingTuesday ends (midnight on December 1).
“We are proud of what we were able to accomplish this year despite the many challenges, and we cannot thank our donors enough for their continued support,” said Dr. Paul S. D’Ambrosio, Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum President and CEO.
Funds raised for both museums will directly support educational programming–which includes Distance Learning and Virtual Programs. Distance Learning takes the place of in-person student field trips and provides free content to teachers everywhere. Virtual Programs continue to offer a rich slate of activities throughout the winter. Both programs are essential for students during the ongoing pandemic.
