#GivingTuesday and New Jersey Theatre

  • Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving all around the world. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

On GivingTuesday 2016, 1.64 million gifts were made, totally $177 MILLION raised! Organizations in 98 countries participated, including over 800 nonprofits right here in New Jersey.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Did you know that all 31 of our member theatres are nonprofit organizations? That means that they rely on our generous gifts to keep the shows running. Ticket sales alone only cover part of their operating costs.
