#GivingTuesday Donation Drive!
Want to be a part of FIGMENT returning next year? And make a tax-deductible donation before the New Year?
#GivingTuesday is a national initiative akin to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is all about donating to your favorite not-for-profits like FIGMENT Chicago! It's also part of our year-end fundraising efforts to bring FIGMENT back in 2015! Money donated to FIGMENT allows us to provide more stages, supplies, and equipment for local artists.
Ways to help:
- Give a donation today or on December 2, 2014. Or before December 31, 2014.
- Share our new posts on Facebook Page or Twitter on your social networks
- If you have ideas, write us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Share your own FIGMENT stories or photos for #GivingTuesday (see 2014 photos or pics below for inspiration)
