Alec Baldwin on Supporting the Arts

Alec Baldwin has teamed with Capital One in support of arts organizations. You can get involved too by making a donation to Americans for the Arts. Donations made to Americans for the Arts will be matched by Capital One up to $50,000. Capital One customers can make donations with their Capital One or No Hassle Rewards but anyone can make a donation by visiting the Capital One GivingSite.

Alex told Extra in an interview in April, “I’m going to do a series of commercials for them, Capital One,” explained Baldwin. “Capital One was so great in cooperating with me to set up a source for people to contribute online. Capital One will match to give to the Americans for the Arts.” The actor continued, “My whole thing is encouraging people not to give up funding for the arts, even during difficult economic times. All the money I make I’m giving it to different charities that are arts-related.” You can help, too! Consumers can go to and make donations to the charities of their choice. Capital One will cover all transaction fees so that 100% of the donation goes directly to the charity.

You can hear more from Alec as he provides details on the David Letterman Show.
