VisArts Raised Over $5,000 on GivingTuesday 2019

December 05, 2019 News

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond raised over $5,000 on GivingTuesday thanks to generous gifts made by the Richmond community. GivingTuesday started in 2012 as a simple idea: create a day that encourages people to do good.

Nine VisArts teachers served as GivingTuesday “giving captains” this year. Together, they represented each of VisArts’ studios and made contributions to VisArts’ Annual Fund.
