MAY GIVING CAMPAIGN 2021
Saturday, May 1, 2021
All month long!
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is excited to announce our annual month-long fundraising campaign. Invest in our programming and help the Halsey Institute thrive as a platform for experimentation for artists from around the world. Through the exhibitions we produce, we spur important conversations about the most pressing topics of our time. Together with our members and visitors, we have built an important community resource providing barrier-free access to adventurous contemporary art for everyone.
We have a match of $20,000 from an anonymous donor this year to maximize your support, so now is a great time to support us with a donation or membership. You can also upgrade your current membership to take advantage of the great May Giving Campaign perks and raffles. In addition to our current membership benefits and our continuing virtual members-only events, we are offering exciting perks for everyone that makes a gift during the month of May!
Did you know that you can pay for your year-long membership in quarterly, monthly, or weekly installments? You can even decide which day of the month is best for your budget!
All new and renewing Modernist level ($60) members and above will automatically become members of the Southeastern Reciprocal Museums program (SERM). As more and more people feel safe taking day trips during the warm summery weekends, a SERM membership through your Halsey Institute membership allows you to receive free general admission to almost 200 museums across the Southeast region!
