Support Grand Street this #GivingTuesday!

2015-eat-sleep-giveGrand Street Community Arts will kick off our 2015 Winter Fundraising Campaign on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back in the Holiday Season.

On December 1, 2015, we are celebrating #GivingTuesday and we need you to be a part of it!

We invite you to become a Social Media Ambassador for Grand Street Community Arts online, and we are still looking for one (or more!) Special Event Ambassador(s) who would organize an event for in the real world. We have an ambitious goal to raise $2000 on #GivingTuesday – $1000 for our Building Fund and $1000 for our Transmitter Fund.

Social Media Ambassadors!

Help us spread the message throughout the day as a Social Media Ambassador!

Social Media Ambassadors are who make #GivingTuesday work, bringing in gifts by amplifying our appeal, and expanding the conversation by replying to comments. On #GivingTuesday, Online Ambassadors will work peer-to-peer, with their existing friends and contacts, and also reach out to major donors and leverage influencers (activists, politicians, journalists) with more social media contacts.
Social Media Ambassadors will be expected to:
(1) make an online donation on or before December 1st using the donation page at, and to use the “Share via email” option to share the  donation pages.
(2) to introduce relevant hashtags before December 1st:
#AlbanyForArt a new hashtag for all beneficiaries of the Albany Food and Wine Festival
#SaveStAnthonys for the Building Fund
#AVoiceInAlbany for the WCAA Transmitter Fund.
(3) Use a #GivingTuesday banner image or profile picture on December 1st. (Available here. We will also make a Facebook Banner page specifically for our campaign.)

Real World Ambassadors!

Have you heard about our heat? It’s been a long time coming! We hope it will be on by the end of the month.

A group of dedicated volunteers have cleared out the entire basement this September and October to prepare for the installation of the furnaces and ductwork.

We want to show off the basement! With the heat, or without. But, we are all quite tired and weary from the dusty grunt work of hauling out trash and power-washing long forgotten corners of our crypt.  We are looking for a friend, old or new, from the community who would take the lead a reception and tour of the basement on #GivingTuesday. It could be during the day or after work. Contact us if you are interested.
