Infinity Visual and Performing Arts, Inc. has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), after the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the causes they support.
Infinity Visual and Performing Arts will be celebrating their 18th year as a community arts education program in November of 2016. Since its inception, Infinity has always been committed to providing scholarship opportunities for area families, so that all students can have access to explore, experience and excel in the arts. Through this year’s #GivingTuesday initiative, Infinity will be raising funds for their Access to Arts Education Scholarship Program, with a goal of raising $2,500 by December 31.
Infinity’s Grants and Marketing Coordinator, Stephanie Rogers, says, “This will be Infinity’s second year participating in #GivingTuesday, and we are very excited to be a part of this movement! As a former Infinity student, who also received scholarship assistance, I know how important it is for us to continue to grow our scholarship fund each year to meet the needs of our community. Infinity’s arts programming and combined mentorship focus makes the Center a truly unique and valuable asset to our area youth and the future of our community.”
