2020-21 Annual Fund

Double Your Gift, Double the Art

Creating Possibilities

Admissions and memberships provide just 7% of our annual costs. SAM relies on the community’s generosity for 64% of our operating budget. Your Annual Gift makes our programs possible.

SAM has received two fantastic matching gift offers that will double your contribution! Your gift will have twice the impact in terms of art and educational programs.

  • Donations received by December 31, 2020, up to $11,000 by two Museum friends
  • New donors up to $10,000 by the McCormick Family Foundation

Each donation is only eligible for one match.
