The Big Give

Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum is excited to take part in San Antonio's inaugural Big Give. Scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 6, this 24 hour online giving effort promises to greatly benefit San Antonio nonprofits as it's proven to be enormously successful in other cities. With the goal of investing in San Antonio nonprofits and driving the community forward, this event has the potential to greatly impact this city by focusing efforts within a 24 hour period to our LOCAL community. I encourage you to not only give to Blue Star, but also to other organizations that are close to your heart. There are over 400 organizations participating in this inaugural event! 

How can you help?
  • Make a donation of $10 or more on May 6th by visiting:
  • In honor of our address, 116 Blue Star, we will be targeting 1:16pm for a prize winner giveaway. 
    • If you give between 1-2pm on May 6th, you will receive free admission to the museum for yourself and a guest.  
    • If you give $16 or more at exactly 1:16pm on May 6th, you will receive a free Blue Star individual membership. 
    • If you give $116 or more at exactly 1:16pm on May 6th, you will also receive an Arts & Eats Cookbook, and a Texas Biennial catalogue
    • If you give $1,160 or more during the 1-2pm hour, you will also receive four tickets to Red Dot, and special recognition in our June newsletter. 
  • Share this with your friends, family, and co-workers! See if you can share this with 10 new Blue Star supporters! Not only is the amount donated to one organization important during the Big Give, but the number of supporters too. Organizations with steady support throughout the 24 hour period receive coveted placement on the online leaderboard. This increased exposure could mean even greater support for Blue Star from the general public that day. Blue Star will be eligible for matching funds and challenge grants depending on the amount of traffic we have that day. Even if your friends can only give $10, every little bit is HUGELY helpful.

All donations will benefit our exhibitions and educational programming. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our FREE after school art education program, please watch this inspiring video:
