November 27th 2018


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

IEMA was founded in 2013 to give the community a place where Inspiration, Education and Connections Come Alive! Please help us to expand the arts in the Inland Empire by giving on November 27th.

For the past two years, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have matched gifts made through the social-media site on Giving Tuesday. Last year, Gates and Facebook matched $2 million with a $1,000 cap per individual fundraiser page and $50,000 per nonprofit.

What IEMA has meant to me!
IEMA is an oasis in the Inland Empire’s  cultural landscape. It brings arts into the focus of the education of all generations. It is work of love and temple where creative spirit and human potential grow together while expand our perspectives.  Love it!!  Snezana Petrovic | Professor Crafton Hills College

IEMA has been-and continues to be- a place of inspiration to me.  I also enjoy the diversity of networking. In a time of advancing technology, where computers and cell phones are dominating, I feel that IEMA has helped open up a pocket of time where I can take my family and watch as my kids are inspired, not only by the beautiful selection of art, but also by the magnificent selection of people. It’s a place where we can socialize and speak our thoughts out loud and where we can get an understanding of someone else’s perspective. Dina Briones | Photographer
I like what you are doing and your advocacy for photography in academia:)

As an artist and arts educator, I feel IEMA is of tremendous benefit to the Inland Empire. The collection of the IEMA provides students, community members, and artists an opportunity to view a quality of art they otherwise might not see without traveling to larger urban locales. The receptions and artist talks held at the IEMA provide a place where work can be viewed and ideas discussed. There is a great deal of research available on how the arts can positively affect the economy, health, and wellbeing, society, and education. Having a quality museum in the Inland Empire like the IEMA provides value in all of the above areas.   Mandi Batalo, EdD  | Professor San Bernardino Valley College
