“In troubled times, art is more important than ever”
Thursday, February 24th is this year’s Fairfield County’s Giving Day. It’s our area’s largest annual philanthropic event. The brainchild of the Fairfield County Community Foundation, Giving Day is made possible by the thousands of generous people, families, businesses, colleagues, classmates, and neighbors who join together to support Fairfield County nonprofits.
“We are proud to be part of this fundraising event. We’ve been relatively lucky and have been able to pivot to online classes and workshops, but it’s harder to support our member artists when in- person shows and sales have been so curtailed,” said Mark Hannon, President.
This 24-hour fundraising event takes place from 12:00 midnight Wednesday, February 23rd through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, February 24th. During this time our fundraising portal page is open and we welcome any donation amounts. Every $1 helps to support the arts in our community.
“Creative expression is so important during challenging times, and we hope to be able to do even more programming with the money we raise during this event,” said Hannon.
