Annual Fund 2024

The Pebble Drop

Drop a pebble into a pool of water and its surface will shimmer with cascading ripples that seem to hold more power and beauty than one small stone can claim. That’s how donations to the Albuquerque Museum Foundation’s Annual Fund multiply into a year’s worth of people and programs that enrich every visitor.

Can learning why Georgia O’Keeffe chose a particular color deepen someone’s appreciation for her paintings? Does a yoga session inside the museum build a sense of community? Will a child find lifelong inspiration through a lively art activity?

We’ve seen it happen, time and again, thanks to you.

Right now, the Foundation, a nonprofit entity that supports the city-owned Museum, is raising funds to support another year of training for museum guides, art education experiences, marketing for upcoming exhibitions, and more—including hosting the popular (and free!) Third Thursday events where people of all ages enjoy art, music, yoga, insightful discussions, and the chance to make lasting friendships.

To pull it off, we need to raise $10,000 in new donations by June 30. Every tax-deductible dollar will benefit the museum. We welcome donations of all sizes and invite you to consider making a recurring monthly gift of $10 or more. Recurring donations are gentle on your budget and help us by providing an ongoing source of income throughout the year.

Consider this your chance to drop a pebble in a pool, one that amplifies the power of every other pebble to produce a year of exquisite ripples for the Albuquerque Museum.
