Art brings people together. Art inspires compassion. Now more than ever, we are grateful for the power of art to give us a new perspective on the world. Consider a gift to the Portland Art Museum this Giving Tuesday. Your support allows us to offer free and reduced price access to nearly one third of our visitors, including children—who get in free—active-duty service members, and countless other community partners. Plus, your gift between $250 and $1,000 will be matched by our Board of Trustees, Advancement Committee, and select donors.
Your gift will go to our Exhibition Series Fund. Exhibitions are our cornerstone program and our economic engine, supporting all other Museum activities, including education and admissions access programs. Every year the Museum raises funds from major donors, corporations, and foundations to support exhibitions. About 50 percent of these donors directly support an individual exhibition, and the other 50 percent support our Exhibition Series—a fund that can support any and all exhibitions.
Your generous donation will be recognized on the Museum’s electronic donor walls and website, in Portal, and at the Annual Members’ Meeting. You will also receive exclusive invitations to private donor events throughout the year. Most importantly, however, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps drive the Portland Art Museum’s mission forward in our community.
