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 immediately 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 Drug, Redding Rancheria / Win-River Resort & Casino, Fall River Brewing Company, Wholesale Solar, Frozen Gourmet Inc, Nichols, Melburg & Rossetto, Siskiyou Central Credit Union, Cornerstone Community Bank and Berryvale Grocery.
