About TCR's Day of Giving

What is a giving day?
TCR's Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving event to ignite the giving community in the Corridor. The goal is to inspire our friends and neighbors to come together for one day to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the great work of Theatre Cedar Rapids. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization who has been significantly impacted by postponed events and prolonged closure, your support is vital to ensure theatre opportunities for the future.

When will TCR's Day of Giving take place?
This year's event is from 12:00:01 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m. on August 6, 2020. All event-related donations must be made during that 24-hour period. While we aren't able to hold an in-person reception this year, we'll have a virtual toast at 4:00 p.m. Pour your favorite beverage and join us on Facebook live!

Why give on August 6th?
While we encourage you to support TCR year-round with your annual gift, the online event on August 6 is considered a charitable holiday. It's a day to celebrate the Cedar Rapids community's spirit of generosity, and to support the arts with "a little extra". Plus, your dollars given during the 24-hour period can be amplified by proportional matching gifts, which will amplify your support.

Who can make a donation on TCR's Day of Giving?
Anyone! Just go to and make an online donation. Gifts of any size are needed and appreciated!

How can I increase my impact?
Many companies offer matching gift programs. Check with your human resources department for details. All matching amounts are added to your donation total to determine your recognition level as it will be listed in future TCR publications. Additionally, this day is all about social media excitement, so save the images provided HERE and post with the hashtag #WeAreTCR to encourage your friends to support the arts!
