 So many ways to give to The ROSS RAGLAND 


Giving-tuesday_copy#GivingTuesday is…

A global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

What you can do is…

Join us this Giving Tuesday (Dec 1) in creating a better RRT and a better Klamath Basin.  Sure, we offer tickets to our world-class entertainment events like Scotty McCreery, Starship, dance troupes and classical ensembles from all over the world and, yes, we sometimes charge rental fees to cover the costs of turning on our lights and heat for other group’s to present events but those things only cover about one third of our operating costs.  That means in order to continue bringing people of the Basin the opportunity to connect with the world through music, movement and drama AND to educate the students of Basin we must rely on the generosity of corporate, foundation and individual givers like you. There are so many ways to join the Unselfie movement this Giving Tuesday:

  • Give money: Head over to www.rrtheater.org/give and enter your online donation (easy peasy)
  • Give time: Contact our volunteer coordinator Bonnie Sims at volunteers@rrtheater.org – we can ALWAYS use more hands!
  • Spread the love:  Join the #unselfie movement by posting a photo of yourself on your favorite social media network with our giving sign to help raise awareness about Giving Tuesday and our own campaign.
