Support your Museum

Since the MMFA is a private rather than government-run museum, its self-financing rate is one of the highest in the country. Thanks to your donations to the Foundation, you contribute to the development of educational and social/community programs and to the diversity of the Museum’s major exhibitions and collections. We need your support now more than ever.
