#GivingTuesday is Almost Over!

Children displaying art and enjoying art making activities at the Springfield Art Museum

Thank you for being a part of the Springfield Art Museum community. #GivingTuesday is almost over. If you have made a gift in support of the Museum this year, we are deeply appreciative. If you haven't given, its not too late!

Your tax deductible contribution is an investment in your local community. Every year, we provide free arts education services and customized tours to thousands of K-12 public, private, parochial, and home school students in Springfield and 26 rural school districts throughout southwest Missouri. 
According to Americans for the Arts, we know that students who participate in art education experiences at least once a year are: 
  • 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
  • 4 times more likely to participate in a math or a science fair
  • 4 times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or a poem 
  • 3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools
  • 3 times more likely to win an award for class attendance
Not everyone who participates in the arts or art education experiences will go on to become artists and that's okay; however, they can utilize skills that art-making experiences cultivate like:
  • critical thinking
  • problem solving
  • team building
  • collaboration
  • innovative thinking
  • leadership
  • the ability to fail and start over again
Your gift today, large or small, will allow us to expand the scope and depth of our programs in the coming year and impact even more students. We are grateful to all of our generous supporters!

Please join us for #GivingTuesday and Donate Today!

As Always, Admission to the Springfield Art Museum is FREE. Join Us Today at YOUR Art Museum.
