A gift to the Annual Fund provides critical support to every aspect of the museum's programs and operations. It bridges the gap between admissions, museum store sales, special event revenues, and the actual cost of running the museum and its programs. While a portion of our Endowment Fund is also used for the day-to-day operational costs associated with the museum, we carefully manage that fund so that it will continue to grow, giving us all the security to know that there is a solid financial foundation for generations to come.
The Annual Fund ensures that demonstrations and lectures take place, schools participate in classes, collections and buildings are maintained, and that every one of the museum's 70,000 annual visitors has an unforgettable experience.
