This year, on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, BCC is proud to join #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday giving season after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It is a way to inspire people to collaborate and give back to local causes.
For this special day of giving, we are calling on you, our BCC community, to partner with us in supporting our work of integrating social justice education with music education, and of providing a rich and rewarding musical experience for each child. The result of our unique program is artistic excellence and the development of the future young leaders of Boston.
To celebrate, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are joining forces to match up to $2 million in funds raised for nonprofits in the U.S. Donations to BCC made through Facebook on Tuesday, November 28 at 8:00AM will be matched up to $50,000 or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button. Facebook is also waiving its fees for donations made this #GivingTuesday to help supporters' contributions go even further. Don't miss this incredible opportunity - donate early to ensure your contribution will be doubled!
