Support + Give

From the Director of Development

Thank you to everyone who participated in the membership renewal appeal and confirmed your membership for the coming year. The Harn is grateful to count you among its friends and supporters. As part of confirming membership for the coming year, the Harn has received 61 gifts to the Harn Annual Fund since September 1 for a total of $6,605. Gifts to the Annual Fund support the greatest needs of the museum and make a difference in the museum’s ability to operate in times of declining state and federal support for arts and culture.

There are a couple of other opportunities for the community to support the Harn through events and gatherings big and small as well as travel abroad.

Harn Mixers
6:30 – 8:30 pm
These events provide an opportunity to mix and mingle while enjoying a home filled with art. Many of these hosts are displaying work by local artists, art they have acquired during travels, or their own work. As intimate gatherings, Harn Mixers allow all guests a change to chat with the hosts, the museum director and other guests. Tickets are $75 per person. I look forward to seeing you all there.

  • October 18 at the home of Janet Davies and Kirk Anthony
  • November 15 at the home of Eric and Sherri Amundson

Harn Voyage Scotland
May 12-19, 2019

Travel internationally with museum staff, including Director Lee Anne Chesterfield, and explore Scotland's two largest cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Enjoy a third stop in Dundee during this 7-day journey in addition to five-star accommodations, gourmet meals, and many exceptional sights. Together, we will tour museums, galleries, and private collections, exploring many of Scotland's cultural jewels. Visit the trip’s program page to review the full itinerary and to register by December 16, 2018. 

I hope that you are inspired by some of these opportunities to provide financial support to the museum. Donations of any size to the Annual Fund, participation in Harn on Tap, and a ticket purchase for an upcoming Harn Mixer are only some of the ways you can support the programming of the Harn Museum of Art available to this community and beyond.  If you are interested in making a gift through your family foundation, your IRA, or other assets, please give me a call and I’d be happy to help you achieve your philanthropic goals.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

The Harn Museum of Art relies on individuals, foundations and corporate entities to support exhibitions, programs and other initiatives. Learn how you can support the art museum of the Gator Nation through making Annual Gifts, Gift Planning or by becoming a Harn Member!

Private and corporate gifts are crucial in supporting the Harn's exhibitions, programs, acquisitions, research, travel, art conservation and general operations. Please contact the Harn's development office to discuss your gifting options to determine the best way for you to support the museum.
