Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 27, to empower people to help the organizations they care about and make their world a better place, one donation at a time.

Our Giving Tuesday goal: 

Raise $5,000 to help finish the Clay Studio.

This holiday season, ACA has a lot to be grateful for - with your support, we have raised $940,000 of our $1 million capital campaign goal.  The "NEW ACA" is officially open: we're up and running in a beautiful new space!  Our sincere thanks to every one of you who have helped us get this far.

There's just a little bit further to go: We still need to raise another $60,000 to finish the build-out, including the eagerly-awaited clay studio.

For Giving Tuesday, we're asking your help to finish the new Pottery Studio.

Today's $5,000 goal will purchase and install the new kiln. Your contribution will take us one step closer to offering clay classes, workshops and events for kids, teens and adults. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500.

Every little bit helps -- thank you.

We could use your help as a Giving Tuesday Facebook ambassador:

Please help spread our GivingTuesday message by sharing ACA's Facebook fund-raiser on Tuesday, Nov. 27.  If you believe in ACA and what we do, please lend your voice to the campaign by sharing the campaign - Facebook is matching $7million in contributions made this Giving Tuesday. a Giving Tuesday Supporter:
A gift in any amount will help push us across the finish line and open the new clay studio next year!

Gifts may be made:


Via our Facebook Fundraiser

or by mail, to:
Arlington Center for the Arts
20 Academy Street
Arlington, MA 02476

Thank you for for being part of ACA, Arlington's hub of creativity and community.  We couldn't do it without you!
