Support + Give

From the Director of Development

The last few months, the Harn has seen some change. While change can seem daunting or by definition unfamiliar, this is a moment for the museum to pay homage to the legacy of former Director Dr. Rebecca Nagy’s 16 year tenure, step out of its comfort zone, and boldly step into the next phase of the museum’s life. The next phase is, as the Harn’s new Director Dr. Lee Anne Chesterfield says, “a moment to build on success.” 

If you are connected to the University of Florida in any way, you may have heard that the university—and thus, the Harn—are currently in the public phase of the Go Greater campaign. This is perfect timing as there is no better time to think about building on success and dreaming big for the future than during a campaign. Everyone can be part of helping the Harn reach its campaign goals and ensuring excellence at the museum today and for years to come. Every gift, be it large or small, current or deferred, an endowment or a piece of real estate, is part of helping the museum to Go Greater. We can’t do it without you.

Over the course of the next year, I’ll be sharing information with you through this forum about the specific priorities of the campaign, the progress the museum is making, and the different funding vehicles everyone can use to fund a gift to the museum.  

If you’d like to make a gift to the campaign, please feel free to reach out to me at the museum and we can discuss the best way for you to invest in the future of the Harn Museum of Art, the Art Museum of the Gator Nation.
