Get Ready for #GivingTuesday

Giving Tuesday 2022 GIFOn November 29, join non-profits and charitable organizations across Canada for #GivingTuesday! Giving Tuesday is an online movement that unites non-profits, civil society organizations, businesses, families, and individuals to advocate for their favourite organizations and causes. Using social media, your #GivingTuesday campaign can encourage the donation of time, resources, and talents to support your museum.

If your institution is planning on participating in #GivingTuesday, check out their official campaign toolkits and digital resources for social media. These resources include information on setting organizational goals, engaging potential donors digitally, and planning your communications.

This campaign is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the amazing work that you do in your community, and to connect with new and existing donors at the start of the charitable season.

We'd love to boost your campaigns! Be sure to tag the AMA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn so that we can share your #GivingTuesday posts on November 29.

Janes Award Galt Image

This year, the AMA is participating in Giving Tuesday to raise awareness and support for the  Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, an annual award that recognizes, supports, and furthers the work of museums that are taking action to support and promote the social, cultural, and environmental health and well-being of their communities. This year the AMA is celebrating 10 years of the Janes Award, and we need your help to fund the Award for another 10 years.

The Award is made possible through an ongoing donation from Dr. Janes and relies on matching community funding to continue directly supporting museums that are true contributors to the social, cultural, and environmental fabric of Alberta.

Recipients of the Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility receive $3,000 to investigate their drivers for success, scale up their activities, and host a workshop designed to model their lessons and successes for other institutions. 

Please consider supporting the AMA through a donation the Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility. By getting involved, you are recognizing, supporting, and furthering the inspiring work of Alberta's museum community.
