Your donations helped the MMFA end 2015 on a high note. The original fundraising goal for December was to raise $10,000 in order to maximize the $10,000 match graciously pledged to the Museum by Corrina and Barry Wilson.
Corrina and Barry have been major supporters of the Museum for many years and have contributed a $10,000 match to the MMFA’s End of Year fund for the last four. Their generous contribution is a wonderful example of the giving spirit.
I am proud to announce that we were able to significantly exceed our original goal. Thanks to overwhelming community support the MMFA raised more than $50,000!
These gifts help the Museum meet its mission of collecting, preserving, exhibiting, and interpreting art of the highest quality for the enrichment and enjoyment of the public.
Donations directly support the Museum’s mission by funding
- relevant temporary exhibitions,
- important art acquisitions,
- renowned artists to teach area youth and adults,
- And free admission for more than 160,000 museum visitors each year.
Thank you again to everyone who helped make the Museum’s End of Year Campaign a success.
