There are many ways for individuals, foundations, and corporations to support Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. In return, the museum thanks members and sponsors with special privileges, discounts, and naming opportunities.
With less than 12% of its budget provided by government funding, Memphis Brooks Museum of Art relies on the generosity of friends and supporters to meet operating costs and other expenses.
The Brooks Endowment was created in 1989 to provide a permanent source of income for the operating needs of the museum.
Patron gifts play a pivotal role in the expansion of the Brooks’ collection. Gifts of art to the Brooks not only increase the quantity but also the quality of the permanent collection.
Planned gifts provide a lasting connection, inspiring tomorrow’s members and patrons with a guarantee that the Brooks will continue collecting, exhibiting, and preserving exquisite art for the enjoyment and education of our entire community.
