Every public art museum needs community financial support because it is virtually impossible to generate operating funds just through paid admission and membership fees.

Thus far the response to the AAM Founders program has been great, but we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $25 million. We invite you to join our visionary family of Founders with a minimum contribution of $100,000, as a Principal Founder with a donation of $250,000, or as a Distinguished Founder with a $500,000 donation or more.

Named endowments can also be established to support a specific aspect of the Museum’s operation. By creating an endowment you can decide where your donation goes and receive annual reports on your initiative’s success. Support key staff positions, educational programs, major exhibitions or art acquisitions.
