Gifts to the Annual Fund provide critical, unrestricted operating support to the JSMA. Distinct from Membership, (which offers tangible benefits such as museum discounts and a members’ newsletter), gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax deductible and help the museum present its public programs, including:

  • Dynamic special exhibitions and publications
  • The care and presentation of nearly 13,000 objects
  • Educational offerings, such as school tours, teacher training, and outreach kits
  • Interesting lectures, fun Family Days, artist workshops and classes


While the JSMA receives a portion of its budget from the state and the University of Oregon, it is only because of the donations to the Annual Fund that the museum can provide its varied and unique programs to its constituents. Please consider making a gift today! All donors to the Annual Fund will be acknowledged in the JSMA’s Annual Report, published each autumn. Download our 2011-12 Annual Report.
