Studies have shown that strong partnerships between businesses, community members, and the arts stimulate economic growth, encourage tourism and enhance cultural image*, and philanthropic support for the arts has never been more important or more necessary than it is right now.
Though the Swope receives grant and endowment support, private dollars are what provide 90% of the annual funding needed to keep the museum alive and vibrant with programming, exhibitions, and outreach activities.
In addition, our museum affiliated organizations the Alliance and the Art Hoppers, our volunteer docents, and other community members provide indispensable helping hands in many aspects of the museum’s activities.
Whether it’s through giving a few hours of your time, or through your or your business’s, tax-deductible program or exhibition sponsorships, membership, or unrestricted gift, you can directly affect the dynamic between our community and the arts.
