Support the Taft

A visitor seeing John Singer Sargent’s Robert Louis Stevenson for the first time, a child learning the story behind the Duncanson murals, and art scholars researching in the library all experience the generosity of donors to the Taft Museum of Art. Through your support, you can aid the Taft Museum of Art in welcoming nearly 50,000 visitors annually from around the globe.

Members enjoy the Taft’s collections and special exhibitions free every day. Other benefits include preview parties for special exhibitions, free admission to select lectures and events, and a 10% discount in the Shop.

A donation can be given to the museum at anytime. It can come in almost any form—cash, stocks, or bonds.

Planned gifts are “planned” over a specific period of time, or at some time in the future. Most people use a tax adviser or lawyer to assist them with planned gifts. The gifts can come in a number of forms, including charitable bequests (money, personal property, or real estate), life insurance (a charity is assigned ownership of a new policy), or gift annuities.
