Annual Appeal

It has been another exciting year at the Hood Museum of Art! We want to thank all our Friends—new and old—who supported efforts to improve our presence in the digital realm, expand our collections, and begin our transition back to in-person activity at the museum. We are delighted to once again offer public access to our galleries and look forward to a landmark new year of exhibitions, programming, and teaching at the Hood Museum of Art. We could not accomplish all that we do without your continued encouragement and support.

In lieu of annual membership dues, we invite all Friends of the Hood Museum of Art to consider an annual contribution to the Friends of the Hood Museum of Art Fund. A donation to the Friends supports every aspect of the museum—from regular maintenance and day-to-day operations to programs and events for students of all ages—and, as always, our exciting new exhibitions. Any gift of $2,500 or more will also qualify you for membership in our Director's Circle. This membership group receives annual benefits, including exclusive member's events and the opportunity to travel with the director and curators on an art-inspired trip each year. 

Giving is easy! Give online OR give by mail:

Checks and money orders should be made out to Dartmouth College with a note indicating that the gift is for the Friends of the Hood Museum of Art. Your donation to Friends of the Hood is tax-deductible. As a restricted gift, it is not part of the Dartmouth College Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted gifts used across the College.

Thank you for your continued support. It is through the generosity of our Friends that we can continue to fulfill our mission of engaging students, alumni, and community members with works of artistic and cultural value at the museum.
