Annual Fund

Unrestricted gifts to Aljira's annual fund are our lifeblood: they underwrite our general operating expenses and strengthen our capacity to mount provocative exhibitions, present enlightening programs, support emerging and under-represented artists and provide transformative experiences for teens. Your annual investment in Aljira's operations can be made by mail or securely online in monthly, quarterly or annual installments. And, if your employer has a matching gifts program, you may be able to double the impact of your investment in Aljira. Please check with your human resources department to find out if your company matches charitable donations (some even match the gifts of retirees).


Aljira welcomes Individual and Corporate Sponsorships for special events and programs, like The Aljira Fine Art Auction; Exhibitions; Emerge, our highly competitive, professional development program; and Culture Creators, our youth outreach and career exploration program. Recognition for sponsorship varies depending upon sponsorship levels, but can include: prominent recognition on Aljira’s Donor Wall; free admissions to special events; VIP invitations to meet-the-artist receptions and curator talks; and recognition on Aljira’s Website, invitations, advertisements and other publications.

Ways to Give

We welcome the opportunity to assist you and your advisors with the planning of your investment in Aljira. Here are a few of the many options for making a contribution:

Cash contributions may be made by check, credit card, donor advised funds, or private foundations. Please note: credit card payments may be made by phone or securely online .

Appreciated securities may allow you to use an asset that could cost you less than the tax deduction you will receive for your contribution.

Other investments that leave your cash flow uninterrupted, such as bequest intentions or revocable trusts are also attractive options. Or you may consider making Aljira a beneficiary of your retirement plan. You can also make a contribution that pays you life income. Gift annuities and charitable trusts will pay you income for life with the remainder benefiting Aljira.
