Why Donate to the MAH?
It takes a lot to make a museum happen–to provide educational programs to thousands of schoolkids from throughout Santa Cruz county, to present inspiring contemporary art and history exhibitions, to maintain a welcoming community space that invites people of all backgrounds to explore their creativity and shared roots.
Specifically, it takes the MAH about $3,000 every day to do our work with the community. Some of that money comes from grants and admissions fees, but most of it comes from people like you who care passionately about art, history, education, and culture. When you make a donation to the MAH, you make a gift to the whole community. You enable us to fulfill our mission of promoting a greater understanding of contemporary art and Santa Cruz history for the benefit of Santa Cruz County residents and visitors. You make the inspiration, the delight, and the learning possible.
And yes, we are a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our federal tax ID number is 94-2718861.
