Save the Date for #GivingTuesday

Posted by Karen Johnson | 06 November 2015

Save the date for 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.

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!
Match It!
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.
Portland Center Stage has partnered with hundreds of local, community-minded companies that offer business matching gifts for their employees. Click here to view a list of the business donors that offer matching gifts to PCS.  If you don’t see your company here, ask if they offer matching gifts.
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.
Share it!
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!
