GIVING TUESDAY 2020:
Thank you to all of you beloved members of our Global family. We miss seeing everyone in our studios and at our events, but we want you to know that we are continuing to create programming that is fun, engaging and culturally unique. We are especially excited that 2021 begins the 25th year of our unique place in the fabric of our community, and we are inviting our Global family and friends to join us in celebrating the entire year.
As you can imagine, Global Education Center is struggling, along with many other nonprofits, to survive a severe loss of income and of teaching and performance opportunities because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To remedy that and to ensure that Global is here to serve for generations to come, we have created some fun ways for you to pay it forward by giving back!
Here are some of the ways you can pay it forward to ensure the continuance of our culturally unique programming and our special place in our community:
Grassroots Global Giving: Keep the Dream Alive - 1,000 donors x $25
This is a fun opportunity for members of our Global family to join in celebrating the launch of our 25th year by giving $25 and asking friends and family to join in the 1,000 donors x $25 campaign.
Become a Global member at the $25 or higher level
Global has many different levels of membership, from $25 to $250 and even a $500 corporate level. For the launch of our 25th year, we are trying to get at least 100 new members. While memberships bring discounts to some of our programming, the main purpose of our membership is to support our mission to use the arts of diverse cultures to highlight our commonalities and promote cross-cultural understanding and respect.
Volunteer 25 Hours
Our home in West Nashville was built in 1894 and 1902 and is on the Historic Register. We love our home with all of its antique quirkiness and welcoming vibe. However, it is showing its age with all of its squeaks, creaks, cracks, and sags. All it needs is a little TLC, but it is beyond our budget during these challenging pandemic times. We would love some volunteers: Carpenters***Electricians***Painters***Plumbers***Gardeners
