The time has nearly arrived for Give to the Max Daythe annual charitable giving event put on by Give MN on Thursday, November 13, 2014. And this Give to the Max Day, we’re taking part in it

Our goal is to inspire 100 givers to invest in 100 youth artists. At Juxtaposition Arts, young artists are supported in our programs to connect with and develop their passion, talents and promise to improve their lives and spark creative community change. Now is your opportunity to support youth artists along with us.

Here’s how you can help us reach our goal this year:

1. Setup a reminder. Jot a note down on your calendar, or in your phone to give on November 13. Ready to give right now? We love it – you can start giving today, on the Juxtaposition Arts’ GiveMN page.

2.  Give. Your contribution to Juxtaposition Arts is a direct investment in these young leaders; a gift in any amount makes a very great impact.

3. Spread the word. We’re using #JXTAGive100 to share our message and campaign and we encourage you to use it, too!

Thank you for supporting youth on their journey to become makers, leaders and doers!
