Gifts and donations to the museum

Please give generously. Private and corporate gifts are necessary to support exhibitions, educational programs, acquisitions, research, collection management and the ASU Art Museum’s outreach to diverse audiences.

Outright Gifts

Derive financial benefits through tax-deductible gifts to the ASU Art Museum. An outright gift is a direct transfer of any asset to the ASU Art Museum. Outright gifts can be made with cash, credit cards or securities and are used to support the current needs of the ASU Art Museum.

Endowments

Your gift could create an endowed fund that provides a reliable stream of income to the ASU Art Museum year after year. Investors may name a space in the ASU Art Museum; establish named curatorial positions, initiatives, lectureships, exhibitions, internships, support acquisitions, artwork conservation or general operations.

Pledges

A formal pledge of support allows you to make regular gift payments over a specified period of time. Pledges allow donors to plan personal giving programs that are convenient for them. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than may have been possible otherwise.

Exhibition and Educational Program Sponsorship

Sponsorship of an exhibition or educational program allows individual sponsors to focus their investments through specialized interests and projects that they will see develop and impact the community and the field. Corporate sponsors benefit from the opportunity to enhance their corporate image and increase visibility through serving the community.

Gift Plans

Planned gifts include charitable trusts, gift annuities and bequests – giving arrangements that can offer tax advantages and allow you to maximize your giving potential.

Artwork

We collect in the areas of contemporary art, Latin American art, contemporary craft, prints and historic art of the Americas.

Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts are an important source of support for the ASU Art Museum. We encourage you to contact your employer to determine matching [no hyphen]gift policies and procedures.

Real Property

Real estate and personal property can be donated outright or become part of your gift planning. These investments offer a unique array of benefits to investors, their families and the museum.

Gifts in support of ASU are subject to foundation policies and fees. Your gift may be considered a charitable contribution. Please contact your tax advisor regarding the deductibility of charitable contributions. Acknowledgements from the ASU Foundation will confirm your gift(s).
