Give to the Max Day is a one-day fundraising event on November 9 that will unite Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., communities to support local nonprofit organizations. During the 24 hours of November 9, the Corcoran will compete with over 500 nonprofit organizations to raise money for ArtReach. The event is organized and sponsored by the United Way of the National Capital Area, the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region, and Razoo.
To get a better idea of what ArtReach is about, please watch the video on the Corcoran’s ArtReach page and meet three young Washington, D.C., residents–Alex, Kayla, and Marie–who are learning about the world and themselves through art.
ArtReach, the Corcoran’s community art program, is celebrating its 20th year of high-quality visual arts education for the youth in our community. The program extends the resources of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the College of Art + Design to diverse neighborhoods in our city. Partnering with community organizations around Washington, ArtReach provides after-school programs, summer classes, and art workshops to underserved youth and their families. The program serves more than 300 students each year.
On November 9, we will attempt to raise as much money as possible for our ArtReach students, but your participation in Give to the Max Day is critical. Each contribution, no matter how large or small, gives ArtReach a better chance to win over $100,000 in prize money. As vital members of the Corcoran community, you are invited to mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 9, to donate and help us spread the word.
