On Tuesday, November 28, the Arts & Business Council of Chicago (A&BC) is taking part in #GivingTuesday - the statewide Giving Tuesday campaign to engage Illinoisans in not only participating, but giving to organizations in the communities where we live.
When you give to the A&BC, you make an investment into the effectiveness and future sustainability of Chicago’s nonprofit arts and culture sector.
A&BC builds relationships between arts organizations and business professionals, provides training in management and board functions, and conducts research into leading and emerging issues related to nonprofit practice, thereby strengthening Chicago’s nonprofit arts organizations’ abilities to fulfill their missions and to have a positive impact on the people and places they serve.
By catalyzing relationships that bridge the arts community and business sector, the Arts & Business Council has enhanced local economy lending on average more than 3,000 hours of skills-based volunteering valued at over $400,000 per year.
This year, we're asking you to donate the cost of your favorite morning coffee, afternoon tea, or evening cocktail and instead give to the Arts & Business Council. Buy us a drink on Giving Tuesday. Your gift will bring business expertise to the 300 arts and cultural organizations that benefit from our support.
#GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, November 28.
