On November 29, 2016, Siskiyou Arts Museum participated in the national Giving Tuesday fundraiser, specifically through the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s North State Gives event.  Fifty-eight people donated to SAM for a total of about $3300.  We will not be receiving final tallies immediatelyheartRed but will update when we do. All donators will receive a thank you letter/receipt for their tax deductible donations.

Our final amount received will include a $500 donation prize from Black Bear Diner that we received in a drawing during the day, and a percentage of the $80,000 pool provided by the Shasta Regional Community Foundation/Knodel Family Endowment Fund.

Other sponsors of the event included the Redding Bank of Commerce and United Way of Northern California.  Other businesses who donated for the $500 hourly drawings were Dignity Health Mercy Medical Center Mt. Shasta, Medical Home Care Professionals, Luke’s Yreka DrugRedding Rancheria / Win-River Resort & CasinoFall River Brewing CompanyWholesale SolarFrozen Gourmet IncNichols, Melburg & RossettoSiskiyou Central Credit UnionCornerstone Community Bank and Berryvale Grocery.

Without the generosity of so many people and organizations, programs like ours would not be possible.  thanks-1314887_1280
