The season of giving is here, there are many ways to support your local arts center this holiday season. Here are a few ways you can give back to Cornerstone Center for the Arts.
On Cyber Monday, November 27 Cornerstone will have a special deal on gift certificates. If you know someone who has always wanted to take classes here at Cornerstone, consider getting them a $50 gift certificate for just $25 on November 27 only. Gift certificates are good towards the fees of any Cornerstone group classes including dance, visual arts, music, martial arts, theatre, and fitness. These may not be used to pay for one-time workshops or private lessons. Cornerstone’s spring twelve week classes begin the week of February 5. Half price gift certificates will only be available online at http://www.cornerstonearts.org on November 27. There is a limit of five certificates per customer. Purchase gift certificates here on November 27.
In addition, Cornerstone is participating in the Giving Tuesday movement on Tuesday, November 28. Giving Tuesday is a worldwide day dedicated to strengthening communities, encouraging giving and celebrating generosity. Each year, Giving Tuesday takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick-off holiday giving. Local communities are encouraged to participate at the individual, nonprofit and corporate levels.
In celebration of Giving Tuesday Cornerstone has started a new program to support the families who receive financial aid at Cornerstone. Cornerstone will be putting together art supply packages for children to use during December and January when classes do not meet. You can sponsor a child’s art supplies by donating just $25. You may give online at cornerstonearts.org, at Cornerstone’s second floor desk, or at the Thanks for Giving Tuesday event at MadJax! The goal is to provide 50 children with their own bundle of art supplies. Donations will be accepted now through the end of the day on Giving Tuesday, November 28. Donate one or more bundles here.
Cornerstone will participate in The Facing Project’s Thanks for Giving Tuesday event from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Cornerstone will receive $5 of the $10 fee of every ticket purchased in support of the organization. This event will feature two free beer samples provided by The Guardian Brewing Co., pours and tours of Guardian Brewing Company's new facility, and music by Cliff Ritchey. Purchase tickets online here.
