Be a Part of CMA's Giving Day
Wednesday, June 1

The CMA turns 100 years old this year! Give a birthday gift to the CMA, and join us on Instagram for CMA Giving Day on Wednesday, June 1, with the hashtag #GivingDayatCMA. Can’t wait to make a gift? Make a contribution by clicking the donate button anytime between now and June 30 to make a gift to the museum’s spring Centennial Annual Appeal.

All gifts from CMA Giving Day will go to the Annual Fund, which provides the museum with important unrestricted operating support for programs, exhibitions, and conservation of the collection.

With your support each year, the museum is able to:

  • Offer school tours to 24,000 children
  • Produce a variety of on- and off-site educational programs for more than 400,000 participants
  • Entertain 80,000 spectators at Parade the Circle

  • Spark creativity in 18,000 budding artists at Chalk Festival
  • Engage 16,500 attendees during live performances and film programs
  • Provide free admission for close to 600,000 museum visitors

Every donor who gives online or over the phone to the Annual Fund on CMA Giving Day on June 1 will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card to Provenance restaurant.
