Giving to Museum of Glass is incredibly rewarding, as you and our community benefit directly from your contributions to our growth and stability. We are a nonprofit organization and our activities are built upon sound business principles. Museum of Glass depends on contributions for over half of our annual budget.

Annual Fund

The annual fund directly supports our unique institution and offerings. Contributions to the annual fund benefit every visitor who walks through the door, every online viewer of the Hot Shop live web feed, and every student from a visiting school. This fund covers our annual operating costs such as paying staff salaries, lighting the galleries, and keeping the Hot Shop furnaces lit and full of molten glass.  Learn more »

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and mutual funds, are excellent ways to support Museum of Glass. Such gifts are simple to make and may provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash. 

Gifts of Art

Museum of Glass welcomes bequests and promised gifts of art. The Museum’s permanent collection includes 20th and 21st century contemporary glass art and our Curator must give careful consideration to gifts of glass prior to accepting them. 

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts allow you to shape your future and that of your loved ones while also supporting areas of the Museum important to you. Giving opportunities can be tailored to meet your specific financial and estate-planning needs. Learn more ».
