Be Among the FIRST 300 People to Donate $50 on Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2022, to Have Your Gift Matched with a $50 Lowe's Gift Card (and we sure could use them)!!
Giving Tuesday is coming up November 29th, and we want to make it as simple as possible for our supporters to give and make the most impact with their gift. Our mission is to enrich the lives of children, adults, and families by inviting them to participate in the wonderful world of performing arts and education - but we need your help to do this!
Here's how you can make the most impact with your donation on Giving Tuesday:
Donate $50 to our SHARE Charlotte Profile starting at 12:01 am (or as early as possible) on November 29, 2022
Our partners at SHARE Charlotte have announced the FIRST 300 DONORS WHO GIVE $50 OR MORE to their favorite nonprofit on their platform this November 29th will have their donation matched by Lowe’s in the form of one $50 electronic gift card given to the nonprofit! This means your $50 donation would be a $100 value to us!
Just imagine what we could do with 10, 20, even 30 or MORE $50 Gift Cards from Lowes!

We could say more, but we'll let our production team do the talking:
