Entertainment, education and community go hand-in-hand, and companies recognize this, as seen by many leading industry corporate officers:
“The arts enrich communities and employees, and also stimulate the kind of intellectual curiosity our company needs to stay competitive.” ~ Norma R. Augustine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Martin Marietta Corporation
“A grounding in the arts will help our children to see; to bring a uniquely human perspective to science and technology. In short, it will help them as they grow smarter to also grow wiser. ~ Robert E. Allen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Corporation, in “America’s Culture Begins with Education”
Arts Education aids students in skills needed in the workplace: flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate; the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence.~ Joseph M. Calahan, Director of Corporate Communications, Xerox. Corporation
#GivingTuesday is a global campaign to create a day of giving to kick off the giving season. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the giving community comes together for #GivingTuesday.
