Right now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, your support of the DIA Annual Fund is needed more than ever.

You know how much art means to our community and the important role it will play as we all work to recover from this crisis. Because our doors are closed, we are experiencing a shortfall and revenue, and we need your support today.

A gift to the DIA Annual Fund will provide critical operating expenses that are needed, even while the museum is closed. Your support will help us maintain a comfortable climate – heating and cooling - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It will help us keep the lights on and have security to protect our collection while we are closed.

And when the museum opens again, your support will provide ongoing funding for educational programs, special exhibitions, films, and activities to deepen your connection with art.

Your compassion is needed now more than ever. Please make your gift today by clicking the Donate button below.


If you have recently made a gift to the Detroit Institute of Arts, THANK YOU for your steadfast support. Please know that our on-site operations are suspended and there will be a delay in receipts, membership cards, etc. Processing and acknowledging your gifts will be a top priority when we all are able to return to the office. Thank you for your patience.
