The CMA Fund

People who give to the CMA Fund have an immediate and meaningful impact on the day-to-day operations of the museum. These gifts touch every facet of the institution, from the safe upkeep of our galleries and public spaces to the planning of exhibitions that are open to all.

Gifts to the CMA Fund are fully tax deductible and enable the museum to deploy resources where they are needed most. These gifts energize us as we continue to evolve as both a remarkable collection you can see in our building as well as a vast and innovative museum in the virtual world that serves you every day.

With your contribution, the museum will continue to expand the Home Is (Also) Where the Art Is digital offerings featured during the spring of 2020's public health restrictions:

  • a video series in which CMA curators illuminate exhibitions, artworks, and programs
  • Desktop Dialogues, a live conversation inspired by objects in the CMA collection 
  • virtual events such as MIX:Bloom and the Spring Members Party
  • Collection Connections and other creativity prompts to help students learn at home
  • Behind the Beat, a video series of conversations with musicians who have been inspired by CMA artworks
  • video explorations of the transformative gifts from the Keithley collection.

By donating to the CMA Fund, you enrich the core activities of the museum and preserve the Cleveland Museum of Art as a center of art and culture in our community. 


If you are considering a gift of $250 or more, you may wish to participate in the CMA Insider Membership Program.
