As a public institution, we are always grateful for financial support from the community; the funds allow us to dream bigger, provide more programs and access to more art works. Bequests are a wonderful way for art lovers to support the museum.
Some of the donations that have enriched the museum:
Also, Friends of Contemporary Art + Photography (FOCA+P) has purchased several pieces of art for the Museum.
Donations are made through the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt entity. Donations can also be specified for the use of Museum of Art specifically. For more information on donating, contact the Museum of New Mexico Foundation or go to their website.

Library and Archives donations
The museum's library and archives accepts donations of books, archival materials, and some periodicals all in the subjects of art, art history, Southwest history, photography, and Southwest architecture. If you have materials that you would like to donate, please contact the Librarian, Rebecca Potance at 505-476-5061. Because space is limited, we cannot accept all offers, and materials must fit within the library's collection policies.
We are particularly intersted in archival materials that document the early history of the museum, from 1917-1970. For a list of books we are looking for, please see our Amazon wishlist.
