Support a New Professional on Giving Tuesday:
Your Donation Will be Matched

AATA News and Events

     Join AATA on December 1, 2015 for the 4th annual #GivingTuesday,a global day dedicated to giving back.
     On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and
students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. AATA members are joining together to donate and to spread the word in support of art therapists just entering the profession. Our goal is to send as many as 10 new professionals to the American Art Therapy Association’s national conference, the largest education event of the
      Donations through AATA's Network For Good campaign made on #GivingTuesday will receive a match by Network For Good and we will be competing for additional bonus rewards.
     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. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and
philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
