Art unifies communities. We need art and YOU more than ever.
As a non-profit organization, the Birmingham Museum of Art relies heavily on the generosity of its members, corporate partners, and donors to fund our programs, outreach, and staff. Prior to COVID-19, this support allowed us to welcome over 120,000 visitors annually, including tens of thousands of children from all backgrounds. We are eager to return to this robust schedule of in-person programming as soon as it is safe. In the meantime, the Museum is open to the public and also expanding its online resources for children and adults.
The BMA has been significantly impacted by this unprecedented health crisis and we are now facing the long-term effects. Although our dedicated staff have made critical adjustments to minimize the impact of the current economic challenge we face, we are in need of your support more than ever before.
By making a donation today, you help the BMA continue to provide meaningful arts experiences to our communities. A gift enables us to carry out our commitment to sharing the power of art in many ways, including:
- Supporting the salaries of our talented team of museum professionals who are dedicated to the Museum’s mission
- Developing educational programs, curriculum-enhancing resources for K-12 instructors, and more digital engagement than ever before
- Planning your favorite community programs and events virtually and in-person when we can safely gather again
Help us continue to spark the creativity, imagination, and liveliness of Birmingham by connecting our community to the experience, meaning, and joy of art now and for the future.
