Five Ways to Support VMAPA on #GivingTuesday

Dec 1, 2020 | News, Santa Clara Vanguard, Vanguard Cadets

Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of people and organizations. This year, we are hoping you choose to donate and support the future of Vanguard Music and Performing Arts by helping us raise $25,000.

With the cancelation of our 2020 season and the temporary pause of our Vanguard Bingo operations, our main sources of revenue are both at a standstill. By helping us raise $25,000 starting now until our virtual Home for the Holidays event on Saturday, December 19, you will be making an investment in the future of hundreds of aspiring musicians, artists, dancers and educators for generations to come.

We realize these are tough times for so many people around the world. A donation of any amount on #GivingTuesday is greatly appreciated; however, if you are unable to make a financial contribution at this time, below are four other ways you can support VMAPA on #GivingTuesday and beyond.

Donations starting today until Saturday, December 19 will be allocated to our $50,000 goal for the holiday season.

Today and every day, the Vanguard Music and Performing Arts recognize and sincerely thank all the generous people and organizations who make it possible to achieve our mission: to inspire communities and enrich lives by increasing opportunities for participation, education, and excellence in the performing arts.
