Quilts are one of the things we leave behind, and it is the Quilt Alliance’s mission to make SURE those quiltmakers are remembered. Help us further that mission on Giving Tuesday ant through December as you pay tribute to someone special to you. See the Thank You Thursday Tributes posted to date.

Giving Tuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation as a global day dedicated to giving back. In contrast to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is about coming together to give generously and then sharing your giving story to inspire others via the social media tag #GivingTuesday.

This year on Giving Tuesday (and up to December 31), make a generous donation to the Quilt Alliance in honor of someone who has given you the gift of quilting: a teacher, a family member, or a friend who showed you how or inspired you to quilt.

 1. Make a donation of at least $25. Make a secure online donation via our website.


2. Email your Giving Tuesday Tribute to information@quiltalliance.org. Send us text (200 words or less) – a story, a poem, a dedication–it’s up to you, and attach photo in jpg or png format.

3. We’ll share your tribute in our Thank You Thursday blog and eBurst posts starting on December 4th and running through December 31. Please share these posts on your social media sites with the tags #GivingTuesday, #ThankYouThursday, and  #QuiltAlliance to share  your support of our mission to document, preserve and share the rich history of quilts and their makers.

Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar!


And thanks to a very generous donation from a family foundation who believes in our work, every contribution made during the Giving Tuesday project will be matched dollar for dollar.  Let me repeat that ; ) –every contribution made during the Giving Tuesday project will be matched dollar for dollar!
