Your donation allows student visitors to Levine Museum of the New South the opportunity to learn about the history of the area they live in through engaging learning tools through livestreamed and in person programs.
With Levine Museum of the New South being a part of the larger Giving Tuesday effort, it reminds us of the power and generosity we can create when we all work toward a common goal. Levine Museum of the New South is able to keep its commitment to the community of using history to build community thanks to the generous support of its donors. Thanks to continual support from our donors, we have been able to build a more equitable community that allows us to focus on issues and conversations that are difficult. During Giving Tuesday 2021, we are inviting community members to support four areas that will benefit families, children and local schools.
HELP FUND SUPPLIES FOR FOUR CHILDREN AT ONE FAMILY DAY EVENT
Through music, spoken word performances, historical insights and visual art reflections, Charlotte youth are provided with a unique learning opportunity at our five festival-styled Family Day events during the year. Celebrating the rich diversity of the Charlotte community, these events provide a variety of fun, meaningful family-oriented activities, games, foods, exhibits and artistic performances. Family Days coincide with school holidays, celebrate important holidays to our diverse communities, and commemorate special dates. Family Days include Three Kings Day, MLK Day, HERstory, Juneteenth, and Day of the Dead.
will help fund field trips for Title 1 schools
Levine Museum of the New South is pleased to offer half price virtual and in-person field trips for Title 1 schools. Students have the opportunity to see themselves in the history of their own city through the sights, sounds, and hands-on activities in our From Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers exhibit or by exploring our exhibits virtually while they interact with a Museum educator. Your donation will help us continue to provide accessible history to all students.
help fund our Educator Advisory Group
This year Levine Museum of the New South is launching an exciting initiative for local educators! Teachers in our Educator Advisory Group will help us craft an innovative 8th grade education program to be used starting in the 2022-2023 school year. Teachers will share their valuable experience and receive a stipend and professional development credit. Your donation will help us convene Educator Advisory meetings and create program materials.

“The topic and tour information was aligned to what our students were studying and learning about in their classes. Students were excited to learn more about their community history of Charlotte over time and it was a meaningful experience despite note being able to visit the museum in person.”

What Is Giving Tuesday?
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. It’s a day when everyone comes together to give back in all forms-acts of kindness, gifts of voice, time, talent or treasure. Nonprofits can leverage the energy of GivingTuesday to tell their stories, engage lifelong advocates and build a movement for their organizations - and that’s way more powerful than just collecting donors.
- GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on November 30, 2021.
- GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
- GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.
- GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 8 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
- GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity—to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
- People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
- At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
- GivingTuesday emphasizes opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing.
- We all have gifts to give, and with social media, online giving, delivery, mail, and phones, there are limitless ways to use your generosity to support others.
