Today is #GivingTuesday!
Posted by Karen Johnson | 01 December 2015
Help us celebrate an international day of giving back.
The days following Thanksgiving are famous for shopping and deals. First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, but now there is a day to put the “thanks” back into your Thanksgiving! Meet #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity.
Today, you can help us raise $1500, or the amount that would bring 100 students to a performance through our Stage Door program.
How You Can Make a Difference
Make a gift!
Whether it’s a $1 one-time contribution or underwriting an entire production, your donation matters. Almost half the cost of running a professional theater company depends on the generosity of our donors. We count on over 4000 individual donors to support the work we do at PCS. Thank you for keeping the arts alive and accesible in our community. Make a donation today!
Did you know there is a way to double or even triple your individual contribution at no extra cost to you? Many companies offer matching gifts for their employees or retirees contributions and volunteer hours. Your $100 gift becomes $200! A matching gift is a wonderful way of making your generosity go further.
The gift of your time and energy is also incredibly appreciated. Portland Center Stage has opportunities for volunteer ushers, docents, administrative support and much more. Our amazing group of volunteers helps us get the job done and we would be honored to have you on our team. Find out more information about volunteer opportunities with PCS here
Tell us your story! What does theater mean to you? Have a special memory of the Armory? What makes giving important during this season? Share you story with us on Facebook or Twitter using #givingtuesday #unselfie.
So show your love for Portland Center Stage this December 1st: make a gift, volunteer or share a story! Giving back feels good. Plus, all contributions made on December 1st this year will be automatically entered onto a drawing for a PCS prize pack, including ticket vouchers, OMSI passes, a gift certificate to dinner in the Pearl and more!
