Ways to Support

Your generous support of the Canton Museum of Art allows us to continue the high quality exhibitions and programming expected by our audiences across Northeast Ohio and the region. Unrestricted gifts cover a wide range of our operating needs, supporting activities such as:

• Collaborative programming with area arts organizations to broaden experience of the visual arts.
• Engaging lectures and programming for adults and students.
• Education Workshops for teachers to integrate The Permanent Collection and exhibitions in the classroom.
• Collections care and cataloging online.
• FREE SmARTSplash Family Days, First Friday, and other hands-on, family events.

Whether you are a new supporter, a member, or a longtime friend of the Museum, your contribution ensures that "Art Inspires!" Below are many ways to give.

UPLIFT! Gifts to the CMA Annual Fund

Admissions fees and membership dollars cover only a small portion of the Museum's operating costs. Each year, friends and members provide vital, immediate support through the Annual Fund — unrestricted dollars that go toward programming and every area of the Museum's operations. Fully tax-deductible gifts in any amount can be made at any time. Our 2016-17 campaign urges you to UPLIFT Creativity, Connections, and Community through your gifts!
