On #GivingTuesday, Give Students the Gift of Live Music
On November 28, philanthropists around the world will celebrate their giving stories and champion the causes they believe in – a global day of giving know as Giving Tuesday.
In America, especially, there are two days dedicated to getting deals: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is a day for giving back.
Together, people are creating a new tradition as millions around the world demonstrate a common capacity to give. The great news is, every act of generosity counts, and each means more when given together!
This #GivingTuesday, the ISO needs your help to bring students to ISO concerts. In December, the ISO has the capacity for more than 4,500 fifth grade students to hear the orchestra in concert. Right now, only half of them can get to the concert because of transportation funding.
Attending these School Day Enrichment concerts teaches kids about symphonic music and instruments. Plus, students learn important lessons about behavior in a theatre!

92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. More than $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
