Pay It Forward This #GivingTuesday

December 3, 2019

Mark your calendar this year for #GivingTuesday–an annual global giving movement. This one day is about individuals giving back to their favorite charity, community organization, or maybe even Museum. How do you want to transform your community on December 3?

Roberson this #GivingTuesday is raising money for 125 admissions—that’s a $1,000 goal to ensure 125 kids, families, and adults can come in an enjoy Roberson at any time.

In our community, there are people who aren’t able to afford Museum admission, which is why Roberson created Pay It Forward. Since launching this program back in April 2018, 260 people have used these passes to visit the Museum, all of them paid for by generous community members. These pre-paid passes enable visitors to come in and enjoy surrealist art, walk through history in the Mansion, and explore the stars through Roberson’s Planetarium—all because businesses and individuals have donated $8, $25, or more. Please help us make sure another 125 people can visit Roberson this year.

If you believe Museums are for everyone, please consider donating toward Pay It Forward and give someone from your community the gift of a Museum admission. Thank you.
