The potential for the new museum to bring art, history, and culture alive for students, scholars, and the public can be realized only through additional philanthropy. While the new museum presents limitless opportunities, we need your help to make them a reality.

We have set fundraising goals to boost the following areas:

  • $7 million to endow staff, fellowship, and internship positions
  • $4 million toward special projects and equipment
  • $2 million in program endowments to support exhibitions, education, scholarship, and collections care
  • $2 million in endowment funds to support museum general operations

Make a gift today to support our fundraising goals.

Become a Founding Patron

During this exciting period of opening a new museum, donors have the opportunity for their campaign support to be memorialized in a lasting way. Between now and June 30, 2016, donors who pledge $50,000 or more (payable over three to five years) will be honored as Founding Patrons, with long-term recognition in a special area of the museum lobby.

Name a Space in the New Facilities

The museum’s new facilities boast high-visibility, high-use spaces that bring additional opportunities for long-term donor recognition through naming. Capital naming opportunities begin at $25,000.
