THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MAM!
“Some kids will never overcome the barriers to full, rich meaningful lives that are in front of them, through no fault of their own. But some, maybe just one, will open her eyes and see possibility where it never existed before and her life will be forever changed. And in some cases, her life will be saved. That’s what a little art program in Missoula, Montana, can do. And that’s amazing.” - John Engen, Mayor, Missoula, MT
ART 4 ALL LAUNCH
September 10 - December 1
MAM BELIEVES IN ART 4 ALL!
Your generosity is MAM’s lifeblood! Your dollars help MAM connect over 40,000 people, young and old, to contemporary art each year and admission is always FREE. MAM has a banner year ahead, offering a myriad of extraordinary exhibitions and educational programs. For instance, in addition to bringing over 1,500 5th graders to tour the exhibition, Selected Works from the Susan and Roy O’Connor Collection, MAM will work with 4th graders from three MCPS schools and the Missoula Writing Collaborative to help bolster Montana’s Indian Education for All curriculum, based on artworks from MAM’s Contemporary American Indian Art Collection. Thank you for helping MAM build community through the arts.

Additional Ways to Support MAM:
A planned gift becomes a permanent legacy and provides benefits to MAM year after year, generation after generation, nurturing the community’s creative spirit. Planned gifts are commitments made today that will come to MAM at a later date. Upon giving, there are tax advantages. If you have an established WILL, you can plan your gift today. To learn more about the options and opportunities available for your consideration, please call our Development Staff at 406.728.0447. All inquiries will be confidential.
In 2000, MAM received its first bequest of artwork to its Permanent Collection from Joyce Folsom. Inspired by her generosity, MAM established the Joyce Folsom Society to identify and encourage bequests of artwork to the Collection. As part of MAM’s Permanent Collection, Artwork will be exhibited and preserved for years to come by our professional staff. MAM’s Collection continues to grow primarily through the generosity of gifts from artists and patrons.
Your endowment gift will help to ensure MAM's long-term financial security.
