(Clarksdale, MS) – It’s late fall down in the Delta, with cooler weather, but things have been hot and hopping at the Museum.
We are very excited to have made great strides toward our goal of raising $60,000 on #GivingTuesday, to match our Museums for America grant! We really appreciate the donations that so many of you contributed for Mississippi Day of Giving and for #GivingTuesday.
So far, we have raised $11,011.85 in online and offline donations, and thanks to the fundraising site GiveGab, we are able to extend our deadline to December 31. We still need your help to reach our goal! If you can, please make your tax-deductible donation to the Delta Blues Foundation (our 501c3) by mailing a check to PO Box 459, Clarksdale MS 38614, or donate through our website, or through the GiveGabsite. Just in time for that year-end charitable gift you need!
Please share this opportunity with your family and friends and help us honor these great men and women who created this music that is the foundation for so many musical genres worldwide.
Help us raise this money by the end of the year, so that we can have our new permanent exhibits in place by 2019, just in time for the 40th Anniversary of the Delta Blues Museum.
We get lots of “thanks” and photos from many of you who have visited us over the past few months. Our visitors include many touring groups, who pull up in minivans, big buses, and motorcycles.
