Support + Give

From the Director of Development

The question of “Why does the Harn offer Free membership?” is one that I get quite often. The answer lies in the Harn’s dedication to providing increased access to museums to creating a sense of belonging, not only at the Harn, but at museums everywhere. Members of the Harn live all over the country--in Florida, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, LA, the list goes on--and their Harn membership allows them access to many cultural events and museums in their own neighborhoods and in the places they travel for business or pleasure.

The Harn is also looking forward to meeting you in your neighborhood with community events, socials and engagement opportunities this year. Please keep a look out on the website and in museum communications for these events. We’ll be kicking off the summer with a Harn on Tap event at First Magnitude Brewing Company in Gainesville on June 29 with art, live music and an opportunity to join the museum. Later in the year we’ll be in Chicago for the Expo Art Fair and in December we’ll be in Miami Beach for Art Basel.

While the Harn is offering you the opportunity to design your own museum experiences, we also invite you to define your own philanthropy. If you’re enjoying the opportunities and experiences that Harn membership has given you, consider making a gift to the museum’s Annual Fund. Gifts of any and all sizes are important and make a difference. Making a gift to the Annual Fund is as easy as clicking here to donate.

If you would like to support an exhibition, give a gift of artwork, or make provisions for the Harn in your estate plans, the development office is here to discuss those plans with you and help you make a meaningful gift to the museum.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

The Harn Museum of Art relies on individuals, foundations and corporate entities to support exhibitions, programs and other initiatives. Learn how you can support the art museum of the Gator Nation through making Annual Gifts, Gift Planning or by becoming a Harn Member!

Private and corporate gifts are crucial in supporting the Harn's exhibitions, programs, acquisitions, research, travel, art conservation and general operations. Please contact the Harn's development office to discuss your gifting options to determine the best way for you to support the museum.
