Make a Charitable Donation to the CMA

The Columbia Museum of Art is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that accepts philanthropic donations to support our mission to celebrate outstanding artistic creativity through our collection, exhibitions, and programs interacting in ways that engage the mind and enrich the spirit. As the largest art museum in the state, with the most significant international collection and exhibition programs, the CMA is the leading art museum in the region and a must-see destination for residents and tourists alike. 

Nearly 33% of all of the programs at the CMA are offered for free or at reduced rates to make the museum more accessible to all. Your donations to the CMA help to underwrite all of the programs and more making the CMA the leading art museum and arts education resource in the state.  

As always, we suggest you consult your individual tax and legal advisor to determine how you can benefit from these changes as you make your gift to the Columbia Museum of Art.

There are many ways to make a 100% tax deductible gift to the CMA. Below are some options for making a gift. 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.
