Inspire and educate the community by supporting the RISD Museum

Every gift to the RISD Museum provides resources to inspire visitors with direct exposure to the work of artists and designers in spaces that encourage looking, critical thinking and understanding. Education and outreach, collection care, new scholarship, technology and innovation are all vital components of the museum’s mission to create an accessible and inclusive environment that builds meaningful relationships across all communities.

Greater than the sum of its individual parts, the RISD Museum encourages individual donors and members to join together to help fulfill its historic public mission.

Another way for you to support RISD is to become a museum member or make a gift to the museum.
