Giving Opportunities

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s annual financial needs exceed the income available from the Museum’s endowment, thereby necessitating active annual and long-term fundraising. In addition to seeking support for exhibitions, programs for all ages, and facility enhancements, the Museum also accepts gifts of works of art that meet its collecting focus.

Gifts to the Museum – whether artwork or cash or other forms – are gifts that continue to give as successive generations of visitors benefit from the Museum and its highly regarded collections, wide-ranging exhibitions, and dynamic educational programs.

Tax-deductible gifts to the Museum may be made in the form of cash, appreciated assets, property, securities, charitable trusts, life insurance, or estates.

These vital giving opportunities help support the Woodson Art Museum:

  • Become a Member.
  • Contribute to the Tribute Fund: Gifts to the Tribute Fund, which supports acquisitions, can be made in honor or in memory of individuals or in celebration of events and milestones.
  • Donate Artworks: The Museum accepts gifts of works of art that meet its collecting focus; connect with curator of collections Jane Weinke or 715.845.7010.
  • Make a Non-restricted Donation.
  • Consider a Planned Gift: Planned gifts, whether artwork or cash or other forms, help ensure that future generations continue to experience an exceptional art museum in north central Wisconsin. The Museum welcomes the opportunity to work with you and your advisors to create a gift or estate plan to realize your philanthropic goals; connect with director Kathy Foley in confidence or 715.845.7010.
