Patron gifts are essential to the growth of the Museum’s collection. Gifts of art to the Museum serve to increase both the quantity and quality of the permanent collection, and further enhance our ability to engage visitors in visual art. Sara Virginia Jones, Dr. and Mrs. Beckett Howorth, Mr. and Mrs. Harvey B. Heidelberg, The McCarty Fund, and The Gallery Guild are but a few of the many generous benefactors who have contributed to our collection.
Collectors can give works of art to the Mississippi Museum of Art:
As an outright gift
As an irrevocable promised gift
As a bequest
As the gift of a percentage of value over a time period designated by the giver
Gifts must be approved by the acquisitions committee, and the Board of Trustees.
The Museum recommends discussing your gift and estate plans with your own legal and financial advisors to ensure your personal and charitable goals are wisely met. We are grateful to all our friends and donors. For more information on giving art to the Mississippi Museum of Art, please contact the Museum's Curator of American Art, Elizabeth Abston, at 601.965.9936.
