Support

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum depends on the generosity of its donors and members to fulfill its mission—championing emerging and under-recognized artists. Your contribution supports working artists, creates inspirational educational opportunities for students and families, and provides essential resources to our outstanding staff. Thank you!

Exhibitions

Whether it is a first solo museum exhibition or a career spanning survey, your fully tax-deductible gift to Aldrich exhibitions will impact the work of exceptional emerging and under-recognized artists. Your support commissions new work, provides fabrication costs, and makes all our exhibitions possible.

Education

Aldrich education programs allow visitors and students, many from under-resourced districts, to work directly with exhibiting artists and world-class educators to explore the themes, techniques, and materials of the work on view.

Annual Fund

Your fully tax-deductible gift provides critical operating support for The Aldrich’s innovative exhibitions, special events, and education programs.

Aldrich members provide essential support to our mission while enjoying special access to artists at exclusive exhibition previews, discounts on programs and in the Museum Store, and free admission to reciprocal museum partners. Click here to view specific membership levels and benefits.

Aldrich Editions

Aldrich Editions was established in 1998 to make limited edition works by emerging and mid-career artists who have exhibited at The Aldrich. This program offers The Aldrich community an opportunity to make an investment in an original work of contemporary art at an affordable price and to simultaneously support the Museum.

Planned Giving

Contribute to The Aldrich's future by planning a special kind of gift. Cash donations provide the crucial immediate support to the Museum, but planned gifts provide creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the Museum.
