Figge Offers Different Idea For Valentine’s Day
Show your love for the Figge Art Museum this Valentine’s Day – Friday, February 14! Don’t spend money on flowers that will wilt, or calorie filled chocolate, instead make a gift for the museum’s first Annual Day of Giving.
Whether you make a gift of $5 or $500, the Figge would love to be your Valentine and any amount will make a difference in reaching our one-day goal of $5,000. Enjoy special incentives and contests while showing your support with an online gift at: www.mightycause.com/organization/Figge.
“This is the Figge’s first annual day of giving and we are so excited,” says Director of Development Sara Volz. “So many people in this community love the museum, so we thought Valentine’s Day was the perfect time to introduce this initiative.”
For more than a decade, the Figge Art Museum has been the cultural center of the Quad Cities. Each year the museum serves 100,000 visitors, over 20,000 school children and more than 17 traveling exhibitions of world-class art in a variety of subjects. In addition, there are a number of art classes offered for adults and children all year round.
As the Figge continues to grow and provide more services to our community, the needs of the museum are expanding. Your gift can help the museum achieve many things. From the purchase of a new forklift to expanding the shelving in the collection storage area to serving school districts without elementary art, the possibilities are endless.
So, go ahead and ditch the roses this Valentine’s Day and instead show your love to the Figge. To donate, visit www.mightycause.com/organization/Figge or call Tessa Pozzi at 563-345-6638.
