Your Generosity Makes a Difference
Yes! Membership at the Harn is FREE. However, once a year we’ll ask for your support by giving a gift to the Harn’s Annual Fund (016131). This fund broadly supports our museum’s exhibitions, programs, lectures and services. Contribute to the Harn’s growth and success by making a tax-deductible gift today.

What reciprocal membership benefits do I receive?
The Harn offers all members access to the College and University Art Museum (CUAM) reciprocal program.

CUAM provides free admission to more than 50 art museums at college and university campuses throughout the U.S. See the list of CUAM museums here.

See the list of NARM museums here. If you wish to receive access to NARM/ROAM, your Annual Fund gift (016131) must be a minimum of $100 which is a requirement of the organization. Once you have done so, you will receive the NARM and ROAM membership stickers on your digital membership card in the Harn’s Digital Member Card app.
ROAM grants free admission to more than 200 member institutions throughout North America. See the list of ROAM museums here.

I previously had access to the North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM) benefit, but now I don’t. Why?
In years past, access for all members to the North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM) was made possible by an anonymous friend of the museum who generously matched gifts to the Harn Annual Fund through June 30, 2017. As of September 1, 2017, all free members receive the CUAM benefit and those who make a qualifying gift receive access to NARM and ROAM benefits. UF Students, as sponsored by UF Student Government, continue to receive access to CUAM and NARM.
I previously had a Dual level (or above) membership. Can my spouse/partner still be part of my membership?
As part of moving to free membership, a membership is for one individual only. For you and your partner to both become members, you each need to sign up online.
I am already a member. What will happen to my membership now that it is free?
Your member benefits will stay mostly the same, with only a few changes. See the new benefits.
How long does my membership last?
Your membership lasts 12 months. You will receive a reminder to renew once a year in September. Renewal emails are sent out annually on August 31 to the email you provided when you signed up for Harn Membership. Didn’t get an email? You may not be due for renewal quite yet. Depending on when you signed up or renewed last your membership could be good through August 31 of next year. To confirm, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 352.294.7055.
Prior to free membership, I belonged at the Sustainer/Benefactor level. How will I be recognized now that all memberships are free?
Donors to the Annual Fund at $1,000 and above will still receive recognition on the Donor Board in the Harn’s Galleria.
UF student memberships are generously sponsored by UF Student Government. As such, current UF students registered as free members receive access to the College and University Art Museums (CUAM) and North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM) programs.
