#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving observed on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Since its inception in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, #GivingTuesday has grown to harness the generosity of people around the world and bring about real change in communities large and small.

By choosing to give to PEM on #GivingTuesday, you become part of a stronger PEM community, a place where everyone is essential. Every supporter, volunteer, employee, neighbor and visitor. A gift of any amount helps deepen these connections and makes our mission possible. You have the opportunity to make a real difference. By supporting #GivingTuesday on December 1, you are supporting the PEM Annual Fund, the arts, and the many ways we serve and respond to the museum community.

What is the Annual Fund?
Simply put, the PEM Annual Fund provides a stable source of income to help pay for the museum's needs. These tax-deductible donations from members and friends are pooled to help in a range of ways, from buying after-school art supplies to preparing galleries for new exhibitions. Please help us reach this year's goal of $100,000.

Many companies participate in matching-gift programs, enabling you to double your contribution. Check with your employer's Human Resources Department to see if your gift can be matched and have an even greater impact.
