Held the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
This Year GIVING TUESDAY is celebrated on Tuesday November 28, 2023. This day of giving is primarily a social media and on-line driven fundraising campaign.
Annual Summer Arts Academy Sponsorships
The mission of the Summer Arts Academy, held each July at BISFA, is to provide a creative and supportive environment for young adults to grow as artists, writers, dancers, actors, musicians and individuals. Sponsorship dollars help provide the funding for guest speakers, master classes, and other materials needed to enhance this experience.
