Giving Opportunities at the Michael C. Carlos Museum


Bonnie Speed
Director, Michael C. Carlos Museum

The Michael C. Carlos Museum brings the stories of civilization to life through exceptional works of art and compelling programs. As a supporter, you help tell those stories.

While contributions from foundations and corporations are important, individual donations play a crucial role in our ability to engage diverse audiences—from students and families to history buffs and scholars. Annual gifts fuel this place of object-based learning. By presenting stories of beauty, love, power, and faith, the Carlos helps us better understand our cultural heritage and, in turn, our contemporary world.

Annual support allows us to offer innovative learning opportunities, expand and conserve our premier collections, and mount world-class exhibitions. Your gifts enhance the experience of more than 100,000 visitors, including nearly 20,000 schoolchildren, who explore the museum each year.

The saying goes, “Great universities have great museums.” I would add, “. . . because of the generosity of supporters like you who believe in and contribute to them.” If you already have invested in the Carlos as a member this year, deepen your museum connection with an additional gift to help us meet our annual operating and programming needs. If you have not yet given, please donate today.
