Mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 27, as Arcosanti will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global movement where every act of generosity counts.
Around this time of year, we have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so on #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back! Whether your monetary donations are small, large, or anywhere in between, collectively we can make a difference for a nonprofit organization by supporting a unique project or program. Last year, with your help, we raised over $6,000!
This year’s campaign focuses on education. We invite you to either give through our Facebook page by following the ‘Donate’ button or visit the ‘Sponsor a Student’ section of our website. For those of you who are only familiar with our famous Soleri inspired windbells, you may be like to know that when you purchase a bell, you support our mission to explore the experiential and educational benefits of integrating Architecture and Ecology. We fulfill this mission by offering six-week long immersive workshops that facilitate a deeper understanding of the Arcosanti ‘urban laboratory’ as a prototype Arcology. This proudly allows us to inspire research, plus foster educational and cultural transformation.
To top it off, we will match all funds raised this Giving Tuesday up to $10,000! All contributions sponsor a student’s full participation in a 2019 six-week workshop.
If our mission resonates with you and you feel called to support our educational programs, please consider #GivingTuesday at the start of the giving season!
