#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We’ve created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.

Buffalo Theatre Ensemble is thrilled to resume its 30-year history, but WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Nov. 29 is Giving Tuesday when people will be turning their spending into donating.

How can you participate?

If you want to join in on this day of giving: Perhaps the simplest method to give back is to make a donation to the Buffalo Theatre Ensemble. Instead of buying that one extra Christmas present, devote those funds to a wider cause. You can stay local.

Your generous donations will aid us to secure rights, advertising, operating expenses, etc.. You made a difference by speaking out and demanding our return. May we humbly ask that you take that support one step further and send us a donation of $50 (though we would welcome even more!) to help us guarantee our upcoming season?* Help us lock in our shows and send us on our way to producing the Chicago style, high-quality theatre you love!
