Annual Gifts

Annual giving at the Harn Museum of Art provides ongoing support for exhibitions, programs, lectures and membership services. These contributions are spent, and therefore needed, each year. Individuals who make unrestricted gifts to the Harn Annual Appeal Fund allow the Harn to decide how best to use their contributions. The Annual Appeal Fund is used to meet the areas of greatest need across the museum. Donors may also choose to support specific museum initiatives and programs that are meaningful to them by giving to the following categories within the Annual Appeal Fund: 

  • Exhibitions and Catalogues
  • Art Conservation and Collections Care
  • Lectures and Programs
  • Curatorial Research and Travel
  • Greatest Need

 

Annual Appeal Fund

The Harn Museum of Art is dedicated to offering relevant and engaging exhibitions and programs, which are free and open to all. Gifts to the Harn Annual Appeal Fund (016131) are what makes these possible.

In recognition of your free membership and in appreciation of belonging, we hope that your annual giving will be in accordance with your philanthropy. Contributions made to the Annual Appeal Fund are 100 percent tax deductible and will be equally matched by an anonymous friend of the Harn; thus doing double the good!

Likewise, many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. This can increase your gift by a ratio of 1:1, 2:1, or even 3:1. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please click here and enter your employer's name.

For these reasons and more, we encourage you to support the Harn’s growth and success by making a one-time annual gift today to the Annual Appeal Fund or consider making a pledge commitment (for up to five years). 

To give securely via credit card, please call Allison Hudson, Assistant Director of Development, at 352.392.9826, x2154. 

Or make checks payable and send payment to:
