Infinity has once again joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Infinity’s INSTILL (Infinity Network of Students Training for Independent Leadership Level) Program encourages students to learn marketable skills while using their creative voices and talents. Young people work with a variety of mentors through hands-on learning experiences within the arts, based on a learning track of their choice.
This year’s #GivingTuesday initiative will raise funds to purchase a new camcorder and editing software for Infinity students who are pursuing a learning track in Videography.
These students write scripts, direct and record short films, marketing pieces, music videos, and more, and then learn to edit them using computer software that is standard with the industry. By providing quality materials for our students to work and learn with, they are learning skills that give them an edge when they enter college and the workforce.
Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Infinity joined #GivingTuesday to spark the spirit of giving in Chautauqua County. Last year’s initiative successfully provided nearly $1,500 in scholarship assistance to students at the Infinity Center. This year, Infinity is hoping to raise $2,500 to support the purchase of a new camcorder, memory cards, and video editing software for our Videography students. #GivingTuesday will kick off the campaign, and donations to this project will be accepted until December 31. All donations are tax-deductible!
