Art Matters: Columbus Museum of Art Endowment
We invite everyone – those who value great experiences with great art, those who embrace the Museum and its mission, those who seek to make a tangible impact in our community – to invest NOW in the Columbus Museum of Art.

Join us in declaring Art Matters by supporting the Museum’s endowment.

Give the Gift of Art

Both gifts of art that have been approved by CMA curators and funds for the purchase of art greatly help CMA strengthen and broaden its collection. Making a gift can also further your current and future financial and personal goals.

  • Gifts provide a tax deduction to the extent permitted by law.
  • Bequests allow you to enjoy your art during your lifetime while ensuring its enjoyment in our community for generations to come.
  • Donors receive an invitation to the exclusive Howald Dinner held annually at the CMA.

Please contact Rod Bouc, Chief Registrar at 614.629.0331 for more information.

Stand alongside others who understand the value of providing financial support for the Museum for generations to come.
