Adopt a Sunday!
Free Sundays are a cherished Museum institution. Representing more than 20 percent of our annual visitors, Free Sunday afternoons often draw families and individuals seeking an enriching, affordable outing. We have been thrilled to receive corporate support for this program since 2007, but now we need your help keeping our doors open for free on Sundays.
If you make a special $1,000 gift to the Delaware Art Museum you can sponsor a Free Sunday at the Museum in 2013. In appreciation of your outstanding support, we will celebrate your gift by placing a sign in Fusco Great Hall indicating that you have sponsored this day. You can sponsor a day in honor of a special person, or jointly sponsor a day as a family, club, or small business. Consider making an incredible gift to the Museum to honor a loved one in your life, in remembrance of those who have passed, or as the perfect way to express your affection on a special anniversary.
Gifts of all size are greatly appreciated, but we hope you consider a $1,000 gift to sponsor a Free Sunday. Within the first month of unveiling the program in late December 2012, 13 generous individuals sponsored Free Sundays! But don’t worry, there are plenty of days left to choose from. To contribute to the Free Sunday Campaign, click the “Donate” button on delart.org and select “Free Sundays” under the designation tab. After your donation has been received Margaret Matteson, Individual Giving & Membership Manager, will contact you to select your special Free Sunday.
We are so grateful for the generous individuals and organizations who have stepped forward to sponsor a Free Sunday:
- Mr. and Mrs. Roberts W. Brokaw III in honor of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute of Greenville, DE
