“Like so many other arts, cultural and community organizations throughout Mississippi and across the country, GRAMMY Museum Mississippi was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi. “We are participating in this year’s GivingTuesday event to raise funds for an outdoor musical playscape that will provide more opportunities for our community, especially our young people, to connect with music. Any donation amount you give will go directly toward making this happen. We are thrilled about what 2022 will bring for our Museum and community.”

GRAMMY Museum Mississippi’s mission is to provide unique learning opportunities based on the enduring legacies of all forms of music; the entire creative and technological processes of recording; and the history of the GRAMMY Awards® with a focus on the continuing achievements of Mississippians.

The new outdoor musical playscape that will open at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi in the new year will extend this mission to more members of the Cleveland, Miss., community, and the surrounding areas.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
