Annual Fund


Invest in the Erie Art Museum
The Erie Art Museum’s Annual Fund provides a vital source of unrestricted income that supports every aspect of the Museum – from keeping our doors open and galleries lit to serving the educational and cultural needs of a diverse community.  Your donation ensures that the nationally recognized Erie Art Museum can continue to offer inspirational and transformational experiences for our community and beyond. Please invest in the Erie Art Museum and help to ensure its mission is met by making a tax-deductible gift today.

TRIBUTES AND MEMORIALS
Honor or remember someone special in your life with a commemorative gift to the Erie Art Museum.  In addition to recognition in the Museum’s quarterly ARTscope publication, the person you are honoring will receive a letter acknowledging the generous contribution.

MATCHING GIFTS
Double the impact of your gift by utilizing your employer’s Matching Gift program!  Many employers will “match” your philanthropic gift with an equal or higher amount. Companies enjoy this opportunity because it gives them a chance to use their charitable dollars towards nonprofit organizations their employees identify as important and worthwhile. If you are not sure whether or not your company has a program like this, please contact your Human Resources department.

The Erie Art Museum is eligible to receive matching funds from GE. If you are a GE employee, please make your check payable to the Erie Art Museum & call GE Matching Gifts Center at 800.462.8244.

Any questions?  Please feel free to email Jennifer Hill, Director of Development, or call 814.459.5477.
