You Make a Difference

Your support makes the Bowers Museum stronger. In addition to our rigorous collection and exhibition schedule, your donation allows the Bowers Museum to:
• Provide free groceries to low-income families from our After School Program
• Provide free art kits for low-income seniors and children
• Provide free virtual tours to children from Title 1 Schools
• Expand our virtual programs globally, which we hope will inspire continued learning at home and around the world

In 2020 Bowers Museum partnered with Mariners Church and Patina Care to provide over 23 thousand free meals to meals for front line medical and emergency services workers, low-income children, families, and seniors, and the homeless.

We pledge to honor your generosity with new innovative offerings throughout 2021. Please join in securing a brighter future by donating today.

Thank you to those who have supported our 2020 end of year appeal
