The Museum of Russian Art accepts gifts from individuals, foundations, and businesses to support its exhibitions, events, and educational programs.

Annual Fund Donation

Gifts to The Museum of Russian Art’s Annual Fund are essential, providing support for inspiring and educational visitor experiences, and for what happens behind the scenes. No matter the size of your gift, your unrestricted donation is the most important support the museum receives. Your Annual Fund gift offers the museum flexibility to allocate funds where they are needed most.

Donate to the Endowment Fund

Gifts to the museum’s Endowment Fund provide critical annual operational support, assuring quality programs, care for the permanent collection, and a stable source of funding into perpetuity.

Make a Planned Gift

One of the best ways to support the museum is to make it part of your planned giving strategy. There are a number of ways to make a planned gift, including a gift of stock or real estate, a bequest, life insurance policies, estate gifts, living trusts, and gift annuities.

Appreciated Securities

Donors to The Museum of Russian Art may contribute appreciated stock, bonds or other financial instruments.  The donation will be recognized by the Museum at its fair market value that the donor may declare as a charitable donation.  The donor will also be exempt from any capital gains tax that might otherwise be created upon the disposition of the donated asset.  Contact Brad Shinkle, Director, for detailed instructions.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many corporations express their support of charitable organizations and encourage their employees to make philanthropic donations to institutions of their choice.  The employer then matches the original donation.  If your employer does offer a matching gift program please request the appropriate form from your employer and include it with your donation.  The Museum of Russian Art will provide the appropriate information to complete the process.

Donate to the Permanent Collection

The Museum of Russian Art’s permanent collection benefits from the donation of art from individuals and organizations. Monetary gifts to the Permanent Collection Fund are used to purchase art for the museum’s growing permanent collection, which includes works by renowned Russian painters Geli Korzhev, Vasily Vereschagin and Mai Dantsig.
