Give hope, joy, and community this #GIVINGTUESDAY!

Hello friends! 

One of our ongoing goals throughout the pandemic has been to provide a sense of hopejoy, and community to Opening Act students and alums regardless of the uncertainty surrounding us. Month-after-month, our incredible supporters continue to show up for Opening Act, ensuring we can provide uninterrupted access to transformative arts education no matter what, and this Giving Tuesday, we would be honored to have your generosity directed toward Opening Act once again. 

Here are a few ways to celebrate Giving Tuesday in the spirit of HOPEJOY, and COMMUNITY!

Give the gift of sustainable HOPE, by donating to Opening Act this Giving Tuesday

Many arts organizations did not weather the storm of the pandemic, and we do not take for granted that we remain a positive force for our young people thanks to ongoing donations from our generous supporters.

Opening Act alum and current Act 2 Fellow, Jacob Matthews, says it best… 

Opening Act became the family that I needed to get me where I am today. Opening Act believed in me when I didn’t even believe in myself.”
