The generosity of friends and benefactors allows the Harwood Museum of Art to continue to preserve and exhibit art relevant to northern New Mexico and to engage an increasing number of visitors with children and adult art classes, lectures, films, concerts and other public programs.
With your tax-deductible donation to the Museum, we are able to serve 26,000 visitors from Taos, from New Mexico and beyond. The lives of over 6,000 children are enriched by art every year, and the rich artistic history of Taos is preserved and shared with the world. Your support makes this possible.
There are many ways to give and a variety of areas that you can direct your gift to support the Harwood Museum of Art of the University of New Mexico.
Support the Harwood Museum
Your unrestricted gift makes it possible for the Museum to provide our community with inspiration and access to the arts. Our parent organization, the University of New Mexico, helps to defray the cost of some salaries and some facilities maintenance, but we need additional funds to support the professional operation of the Museum. Ways to Give
By giving a donation to the Museum or purchasing an Alliance membership of $500 or more, you are invited to join the Director’s Circles of the Harwood Museum of Art. Participation in the Director’s Circles provides valuable annual support to the Museum and gives you exclusive opportunities to join fellow art lovers in special events that provide unprecedented access to Harwood Museum and the arts in Taos. Please see Director’s Circles for levels and types of involvement.
Sponsoring a specific event, exhibition or educational program is a great way to support the Museum. Business sponsors receive the opportunity to promote your company to the Museum audience as well gain opportunities to entertain clients and employees. Several Sponsorships levels are available with commensurate options for benefits and recognition. Sponsors may also choose to remain anonymous.
