Recent Annual Fund donor and Junior Patron member Margaret Whiteside wants you to know why she gives to the Annual Fund.
What does the Museum mean to you?
Art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember, and studying art and artists is a passion of mine. The BMA is one of the few places in this hectic world where I can go to slow down, relax, and appreciate beautiful objects and know that I will never be disappointed by what I see.
Why did you decide to donate to the Annual Fund this year?
I realize that all gifts, regardless of size, make a difference to the Museum and that through my support I may help others discover their love of art. It’s a small way of giving back to a place that gives so much to so many.
Why is it important to you to be a member and, specifically, a Junior Patron of the Museum?
It’s important for me to be a member and JP so that I can continue to be involved with the Museum and feel connected to what’s going on. There are so many wonderful programs and benefits for members, plus it’s great to be able to routinely gather with fellow art lovers.
We hope that YOU will be inspired to give to the Annual Fund, too! Gifts support the Museum's areas of greatest need. Please CLICK HERE to donate now!
