Requests for Donations

Thank you for thinking of the DIA for your nonprofit organization's fundraiser – we greatly appreciate the opportunity to give back to our communities. We are happy to make a donation to eligible nonprofits whose activities enrich the greater community in which we all live.

Given the large number of requests we receive each year, we have now automated our donation request system and all requests must be made through the form below.

The following guidelines have been developed to create consistency and fairness to organizations that seek support:

Donation Request Guidelines


  • Organization should be a registered tax exempt 501 (c) (3)
  • Organization should be located in the state of Michigan. Out-of-state requests cannot be filled.
  • All requests are evaluated on an individual basis and the DIA reserves the right to deem what in-kind donation is appropriate for each request.
  • One request per organization will be considered per calendar year.
  • Organizations requesting donations must submit their request by using the online form below. Incomplete requests or requests by phone, fax, or email will not be accepted.
  • Please send requests at least 30 days prior to the event.
  • With the exception of tickets, all donations must be picked up at the DIA Museum.

We are UNABLE to donate to:

  • For-profit organizations
  • Second generation requests (for-profit organizations or individuals raising money for another group)
  • Events benefiting a single person or family

NOTE: Submitting a request does not guarantee a donation.
