GiveTuesday 700x

We invite you to celebrate 20 years with us as we again participate in the #GivingTuesday challenge this year on November 28. This year we have a match of $20,000 and have been challenged to raise $20,000 in 20 days in celebration of our 20th anniversary. 

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners
to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

 We are grateful for your continuing support of the Newberry Opera House whether it is through the giving of donations and sponsorships or your show attendance. We would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for our loyal donors like you. We look forward to the next 20 seasons!
