Annual Fund

Help The Contemporary provide exceptional exhibitions, thought provoking educational and public programs, and support the Studio Artist Program!

The Contemporary depends on the generous support of individuals. If you are a Member we thank you, and certainly that is one great way to support us, but did you know there are others? We sincerely hope that you can play a vital role in ensuring our success by making a pledge or a gift to the Annual Fund. Please consider the following types of giving:

1. Cash Donations

Or, mail a check to: Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, ATTN: Annual Fund, 535 Means Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.

2. Matching Gifts

The easiest way to double your donation is through an employer-sponsored Matching Gift. We’ve listed a few companies below, but there are literally hundreds that participate. Contact your HR department to see if your company offers a matching gift program. Then send the matching gift form in with your donation and we’ll take care of the rest.

3. Gift of Stock

One of the smartest ways to give is through appreciated publicly-traded Stock held for more than one year. Stock transfers are simple and can provide an even greater tax benefit than giving cash. Contact us to find out how to give the gift of stock.

Why Give in Multiple Ways?

  • We depend on a diverse mix of funding to support our mission. This includes foundations, government grants, corporations, businesses, and individuals like you.
  • Maybe you are member of The Contemporary, but you really would like to give a bit more in support of our programs. A donation to the Annual Fund is a great way to be philanthropic.
  • Many of our foundation, government, and corporate donors look to see how many individuals support us as members and give to the Annual Fund as a way to help them determine how much the community values the work we do. The more people who support us, the better our chances are for funding.
  • Finally, we hope that you will support us in multiple ways, because you believe that the programs we provide are important to you and to others.
