Expendable Fund Opportunities

Establishing an expendable fund is a way of contributing to a specific area of the Gallery’s activities for a defined period of time. With your financial gift, you can establish an expendable fund that is designated for the Gallery’s collection, public programs, outreach program, special projects or research.
