Annual giving at the Patron level provides critical funding for innovative exhibitions and education projects. These gifts enable The Jewish Museum to enhance its standing as a leading cultural institution, both locally and nationally. In appreciation of their generous commitments, Patrons enjoy an array of benefits, including invitations to exclusive events, such as Art Culture & Conversation, Curator's Choice, and a private preview at the annual Sotheby's Judaica sale.
A generous array of additional benefits accompanies each level of Patron membership. Patron Membership is tax deductible except for $80 which represents the estimated value of the offered goods and services you will receive for your contribution.
For additional information about joining the Patron Program, please contact Tania Apicella, Assistant Manager, Individual Giving, at 212.423.3342 or via email at email@example.com.
