The Arts Council for Long Beach is excited to announce that we will be participating in this year’s Long Beach Gives!

What is Long Beach Gives? Long Beach Gives is a 24-hour, online fundraising campaign that provides Long Beach nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors. The $350,000 fundraising goal of Long Beach Gives is to inspire individuals and businesses in our community to come together to make a difference in the exemplary work of the 75+ local nonprofits participating. 

When: Thursday, September 19, 2019 (9.19.19) starting at midnight. 


It is the Arts Council for Long Beach’s mission to foster creativity and culture, and part of that mission is to continue to bring our city’s vibrant arts scene into the classroom. During Long Beach Gives, we will be raising funds for our following arts learning programs: 

  • Eye on Design is a 15 week public art education program for third-graders that encourages civic involvement, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving through a customized residency program.
  • Passport to the Arts is a six week experience for Long Beach third and fourth graders that teaches interdisciplinary arts education and cultural enrichment through dance, visual art, music, or theater.
  • The Creative Long Beach Internship Program strives to develop and retain new arts leaders by pairing California State University, Long Beach and Long Beach City College students with quality internships at Long Beach arts and cultural organizations.

How to Support: Join the movement on this inspired day of giving for Long Beach nonprofits to raise unrestricted dollars to support their mission critical services. The goal on 9.19.19 is to activate the entire community to support the city’s nonprofits.
