Announcing Giving Tuesday Matching Funds – Give to Double Your Gift!

Double your gift by making a contribution or pledge this Giving Tuesday!

Our community needs the arts more than ever, and Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center exists thanks to your ongoing support. As we continue to navigate a changing landscape during this year’s pandemic, we turn to you.

Please give on Giving Tuesday for increased arts access in 2021 and NEW matching gifts! Here are two ways to have your dollars matched this year:

  • Give online here or pledge a gift by December 1 to have your gift matched up to $5,000! Special thanks to our generous Giving Tuesday matching donor Janie Schneider in memory of Dennis Fulbright. If you would like to pledge a gift, you may email me at or call (517)883-1435 and pay by check.
  • Can you be at the ready? Give between 8 and 8:05 a.m. Eastern Time on December 1, Giving Tuesday, for an ADDITIONAL MATCH! Facebook Company will match the first $7 million raised (100% for the first 2 million, 10% for the next 5 million), which is likely to be used within 5 minutes. Help us be in the first $7 million through our Facebook fundraiser here!

Your support keeps the arts alive, despite the pandemic.

Together, we’ve innovated with online art classes, camps, tours, and a NEW online art gallery! We produced artist talks and pop up art events. Stellar figures in our annual report include 25% increase on social media, 200+ Michigan artists, and over 85,000 visitors to ARTpath 2020: Public Art Along the Lansing River Trail.

Please pledge a gift now or give online on Giving Tuesday!

Your gift will help provide inspiration, self-expression, and visual arts achievement through our mission: to provide public awareness, education, and enjoyment of the visual arts by promoting the works of Michigan artists. I hope you’ll join me. Feel free to call or email with your pledge: (517)883-1435 or, or standby to make your gift on Dec. 1!
