Annual Fund

The Columbia Museum of Art provides accessible arts education, community enrichment and lifelong learning for all. Help us remain the creative hub in our community by making a charitable donation to the Annual Fund today. 

Gifts to the Annual Fund are vital to sustaining our exceptional collection and educational programs. With your support, we will continue to inspire and connect people to the visual arts while making our community a better place to live, work, play, and visit. All donations to the Annual Fund go directly to funding our exceptional arts education and exhibitions programs that make our community great!

“Most of our students have never viewed this type of rare art work in person and have not stopped expressing how much they enjoyed the experience.”
- Berkeley Center for the Arts educators

The CMA creates unique experiences that teach visitors about culture and history. And for those in our community that cannot afford to pay admission or purchase a membership, we provide opportunities to explore the museum for free – enabling more people to participate in all we have to offer.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to set up a scheduled payment or recurring gift, please contact the development office at 803-343-2198.

Thank you for your consideration and generous support of the Columbia Museum of Art.
