How to Help

Be a Part of the Future!

Over the past five years, a group of donors have generously given to the CMA’s Think Art campaign to make our building renovations possible. The campaign funds underwrite the infrastructure of the museum but we need your support to sustain and expand the new opportunities these improvements will bring. 

It’s your turn to be a part of the museum’s future! We need your help!

By donating to the Columbia Museum of Art, you are providing a place for students to fall in love with art, you are bringing bigger exhibitions to Columbia, you are contributing to the economic growth of Main Street, and you are ensuring that we are able to keep the lights on in our beautifully renovated building.

Any gift size is appreciated – from $1 to $1,000,000! Regardless of the size of your gift, we invite you to be a part of this incredible time as the CMA plans for the future. Make your gift today and make it recurring to make the most impact! 

These gifts are not membership purchases and all proceeds will go directly to the museum’s operating budget. 

If you’re feeling particularly inspired and want to discuss making a Major or Planned Gift to help grow the endowment, please contact Brian Dolphin at or 803-343-2198. He’d be delighted to talk with you about your estate plans and making an impact on the future of the museum!
