Other Ways to Donate

Donate Art

If you are interested in presenting artwork for consideration, please mail or email images of the work along with information including the artist, title, date, medium and dimensions.

Donate Art

The museum’s collection of modern and contemporary art (from 1850) has historically grown largely through generous donations. If you are interested in presenting artwork for consideration, please mail or email images of the work along with information including the artist, title, date, medium and dimensions. If you do not know this information, it would be helpful to research the artwork or pursue an appraisal before offering it to the museum.

Very rarely will the museum purchase artwork from private individuals, as our acquisition funds are limited and often designated well in advance.

Please understand that any addition to the collection must be approved by our Accessions Committee and Board of Trustees, a process that takes as long as six months to a year.

Email curator@AkronArtMuseum.org with inquiries about donating art.

You may also mail materials to:

Masterpiece Society

For many donors, remembering the museum in their will with a bequest is the most realistic and direct way of making a significant gift to the museum.

Masterpiece Society

The Masterpiece Society recognizes those who have informed the museum of their intention to include us in their estate plans. For many donors, remembering the museum in their will with a bequest is the most realistic and direct way of making a significant gift to the museum. Bequests reduce the size of the taxable portion of your estate and tax liability. Some common types of bequests include:

  • Specific Bequest
    The museum receives a specific dollar amount or a specific asset(s) such as securities, real estate or tangible personal property including works of art.
  • Residuary Bequest
    The museum receives all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after the payment of any specific bequests and all estate-related expenses.
  • Retirement Plan
    The museum is designated as a beneficiary of the remainder of your IRA, tax-deferred annuity, qualified pension or profit-sharing plan.
  • Testamentary Charitable Remainder Trust
    The trust provides one or more heirs with an annuity or unitrust distribution for life, after which the assets pass to the museum.

To ensure that your exact intentions are carried out, we encourage you to consult with your financial or legal advisor for specific advice regarding your estate.

Annual Fund

Yearly support made any time or during our yearly campaign from our members and friends is critical for the general operations of the museum. Annual gifts made at any time or during our yearly campaign are a wonderful way to support programs that are meaningful to you.

Tribute & Memorial Gifts

Tributes and Memorial Gifts can be made in honor of a friend, family member or business associate. The honored individual or family will receive an acknowledgement that a gift has been made.
