Giving Tuesday! We're All In This Together!

This year has been unlike any other, and its challenges have often seemed overwhelming. Now more than ever, maintaining our connections— with families, friends, local and global communities—has been vital to sustaining our own lives and the lives of other. On #GivingTuesday, December 1, Coney Island USA is proud to stand with a network of other not-for-profits from around the world on, encouraging and inspiring people to celebrate generosity and do good.  

Although Covid-19 kept our doors closed for most of 2020, Coney Island USA still found meaningful ways to engage with our community. Together, we paid tribute to those folks on the pandemic's frontlines with our "Maskies" contest. With your support, we raised much-needed funds for local charities at our first-ever "virtual" Mermaid Parade, the Tail-A-Thon. The Coney Island Film Festival gave independent artists and filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their work-virtually-at a time when all theaters remain shuttered. On Saturday,  December 5, we'll be hosting Once Upon A Time in Coney Island, an online celebration to benefit the Coney Island Museum.  

If you love Coney Island, you know the importance of Coney Island USA and our mission. For almost 40 years, we've been at the vanguard of preserving and promoting the People's Playground, paying homage to performing-art-forms of old with quirky and unique programming. We are also committed to sustaining our community, both through cultural preservation and by helping to bring the visitors that are our neighborhood's economic lifeblood.  

We know these times are not easy for anyone. Still, we ask you to please consider supporting Coney Island USA on #GivingTuesday. Your gift will help ensure that we can continue our mission of defending the honor of America's popular culture and keep the thrills and wonder alive for generations to come. 

Thank you for your support!
