Celebrate Creativity on Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday A Project of Urban Gateways

Update at 2:45pm: Our original goal of $2,000 was just met! Our Board of Directors has agreed to match an additional $500! Help us meet our NEW stretch goal of $2,500!!!

We've all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Do you know about #GivingTuesday?

In response to the burst of consumerism that follows Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for individuals, businesses, and communities around the world to come together in a different way: to celebrate generosity and to give. So after you've done your shopping (or even if you avoid the crowds and sales altogether), consider donating to arts education on Giving Tuesday - TODAY, December 1.

Urban Gateways educates and inspires young people in the Chicago area by delivering high-quality, accessible arts experiences that advance their personal and academic growth. If you believe, as we do, that creativity and artistic expression are crucial components of healthy, happy lives and healthy, happy communities, then help us meet today's goal: We are aiming to raise $2,000 before midnight. What's more, today only, every dollar will be matched by a donation from our Board of Directors.

Plus, donate $50 or more and receive an Urban Gateways T-shirt as thanks! What's not to love? Thank you from our staff, our Board of Directors, our teaching and touring artists, and most importantly, the 75,000 Chicago-area youth that we serve each year.
