Giving Tuesday is November 29!

-from the Executive Director

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the back-to-back days of deals, join us in kicking off the holiday season of giving November 29: Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that unites people and organizations for one common goal: to do good!  Over the past four years #GivingTuesday has empowered more than 45,000 organizations in over 75 countries to give back to their communities.  In 2015 #GivingTuesday raised over $116 million online across the globe- double what was raised in 2014!

Ways to gear up for GivingTuesday:

At the IVDM, we have spent the last year devoted to education. We have seen thousands of kids come through the museum and our festival booths.  It takes a lot of effort to plan and deliver programs, events, and field trips and we now have three new staff in our well-trained education department to help make that happen!  We have already booked half of our field trip days for 2017 and have six festivals on our calendar.

Our Education Department, however, is fully funded by donations.  Our youth programs only happen with your help!
What Your Donation Buys:
$400= 1 Fair/Festival Coiled Clay Booth
$200= 1 History on the Go classroom trip
$800= Clay and field trip supplies for a year

Even your donation of just $5 supports one child learning about the cultural history of the early people in the Southern California deserts.

On Giving Tuesday, November 29, a global day of giving, we are focusing all donations on Education! Help us reach our goal of $6,000 raised by the end of the day November 29. 

You can donate through our online campaign website or mailing a check to:

Imperial Valley Desert Museum Society
P.O. Box 2455
El Centro, CA 92244
 Mark your calendars, spread the word, and thank you in advance for your support!
