Child creating art at the CMA

Creativity is central to everyday life, and art is central to creativity. Art drives imagination, innovation and understanding of a bigger world.

Our educational offerings, exceptional exhibitions, meaningful community outreach, programs and events play a unique role in our community, and would not be possible without support from our members and donors. Arts education is at the core of our mission, and gifts to the Annual Fund are essential to sustaining our exceptional educational programs.

Help us remain the creative hub in our community by making a charitable donation to the Annual Fund today.

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 by:

  • Inviting families to look and learn—using educational activities to explore the world of art and talk about what it means to them
  • Involving students in hands-on art programs that reach across core subjects in order to develop creative thinking skills, critical for success in the 21st century
  • Connecting educators with the museum’s collection and exhibitions that support South Carolina education standards
  • Offering adults life-long learning opportunities for pleasure and personal growth
  • Taking community art education programs into the city, county and state to provide greater access and exposure to art
  • Collaborating with artists to offer learning and teaching experiences

We welcome you to use art to spark your imagination and add to your enjoyment in life by supporting the Columbia Museum of Art. Gifts to the Annual Fund can be made at all giving levels and we could not be where we are today without your generosity.

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