Giving Marketplace

Start your holiday season
with gifts that give back!


Fri, Nov 30 & Sat, Dec 1, 2018

10 AM to 5 PM

Find unique gifts for family and friends from over 30 vendors and organizations that support causes such as empowering women and girls, protecting the environment, fighting for clean water, and responding to the refugee crisis. This year’s program will have a special section on local organizations using design innovation to tackle world problems.

Looking to do more than just shop? Pull up a chair, push up your sleeves, and make your own gift bags alongside local artists and join Sanctuary Arts Center in creating one-of-a-kind gift cards. Have fun participating in this unique opportunity at our once-a-year Giving Marketplace.

RSVPs are requested but not required. Free and open to all.
