Congratulations to The Hyde! Last week, $3,000 was awarded to the Glens Falls museum by Stewart’s Shops. The gift is a part of Stewart’s Holiday Match grant program, and will help fund The Hyde’s outstanding children’s programs.
For the Love of Art
Stewart’s Holiday Match grant program, an annual fundraiser that has raised nearly $26 million since 1986, awards nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping children. Last year alone, the Holiday Match program raised $1.89 million by matching customer donations. That can make a big difference!
The grant given to The Hyde will go toward free programs like Tours for Tots, Artful Afternoons, Art Crawl, and Art Lab. Visit hydecollection.org for a full list of The Hyde’s kids’ activities.
Museum Educator Jenny Hutchinson said in a statement, “Having consistent support from organizations like Stewart’s makes it possible for the Museum to offer our children’s programs free of charge. The physical, emotional, and social benefits of arts education are well documented, so with Stewart’s Shops’ support, we can offer children in our community opportunities that change their lives.”
“The Hyde is overjoyed by the generosity of Stewart’s Shops,” added Museum interim director Anne Saile. “Year after year, the company supports numerous local nonprofit organizations and the impact that has on our community is profound. We are proud to be among the recipients.”
