Arts Council Windsor & Region (ACWR) is now accepting donations for GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses, and communities across Canada and in countries around the world. GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement and is considered by many as the opening day of the giving season. On November 29th, 2022 GivingTuesday Canada will celebrate its 10th anniversary, with thousands of partner organizations and millions of Canadians expected to take part. Since 2013, GivingTuesday has united millions of Canadians to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
The impact of GivingTuesday goes well beyond charitable donations, inspiring giving in all its forms. From coast to coast to coast, people are embracing this day as an opportunity to raise money for local charities and nonprofits, run food and clothing drives, give blood, encourage kindness, help a neighbor, and celebrate generosity. At a time when we are all experiencing the continued effects of the pandemic, GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity – to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
So far more than 7,500 Canadian charities, business, and community groups have used GivingTuesday to rally generosity and help make the world a better place in countless ways. Around the globe there are official GivingTuesday movements in more than 80 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Kenya, Slovenia, Tanzania, the UK, and more.
ACWR joined GivingTuesday to raise funding in support of the various programs, services, and resources that the organization offers to all types of artists in the Windsor-Essex region. Donations will be allocated to providing communities with valuable services, like Artspeak Gallery, free workshops, the New Voices program, free space arts residencies, individual grant consultation, an in-office resource library, a website which hosts resources, a community arts calendar, the weekly Arts Notes newsletter, and more.
