50th Anniversary Excellence in Education Campaign

The Amon Carter’s free education programs play an important role in this community and our country. These programs serve students, educators, families, and adults with the goal of offering free and meaningful access to the museum’s collection to everyone.

Since 2001, the number of people served by the museum's education program has grown 573 percent. The Excellence in Education Campaign is allowing us to continue this upward trend, supporting and enhancing current programs while providing additional funds for growth in the number and variety of audiences we reach.

pdf-lg.gif50th Anniversary Excellence in Education Campaign Case Statement

In honor of Amon G. Carter’s philanthropic vision and in celebration of the Amon Carter’s half-century of service to our community, we ask you to contribute to the 50th Anniversary Excellence in Education Campaign.

Campaign Goal: $3.8 Million

By contributing to this campaign, you will join a team of devoted trustees, fellow donors, and museum staff who believe in the fundamental importance of art in all of our lives—and in the Amon Carter’s educational philosophy, which supports everyone’s opportunity to embrace and participate in this experience.

All gifts—large and small—are welcomed and appreciated. Contributors at higher levels will be recognized on a special 50th Anniversary Excellence in Education Campaign recognition wall in the museum. All contributors will be listed in Program, the museum’s member magazine, as well as in the Annual Report.

We appreciate your consideration. Please feel free to call the Development Office at 817.989.5066 with questions or comments.
