December 1 – Giving Tuesday

We plan to keep reveling with you — with your help this #GivingTuesday!

This Spring, Washington Revels promised our community that we would be here throughout the pandemic — and we’ve kept that promise with new free and low-cost virtual programs that are connecting us in shared joy.

In the face of the continuing COVID-19 crisis, Washington Revels is relying on the generosity of donors to support these programs, pay performers, and keep operating.

For #GivingTuesday, we’ve partnered with the Catalogue for Philanthropy‘s Give Local Together campaign — and we need your help to reach our ambitious $15,000 fundraising goal.

There are two easy ways you can support Revels on December 1:

  • Donate via our GivingTuesday page
    • Give during one of our “Power Hours” on December 1 to help us reach the most individual donors and win a cash prize. Power Hours are from 12-1 PM and 8-9 PM.
    • Is Giving Tuesday not a good day for you? Early Giving is open, so you can make your gift today and help us reach our goal.
  • Email friends and/or post about our fundraiser on social media using our sharing resources.
    (using our ready-made text & photos!)

Your generosity will be paid forward as we continue to innovate through the Winter months ahead, looking with hope towards a season of renewal for all of us.

How to Help:

Telling your friends why you support Washington Revels will help us reach so many more people than we ever could on our own. It only takes a minute to copy, paste and customize one of these posts:
