There are many ways for individuals, foundations, and corporations 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, the museum relies on the generosity of friends and supporters to meet operating costs and other expenses.
Honoring a loved one through memorials/honorariums to the Brooks can be a wonderful way to pay tribute while helping us continue to enrich lives.
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.
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.
The Brooks Endowment was created in 1989 to provide a permanent source of income for the operating needs of the museum.
Help the Brooks continue to make art education accessible to the community. Your support will connect people with art and inspire creativity and curiosity through innovative and thought-provoking education and outreach programs. Learn more about the Brooks Museum's education programs.
