Your generosity enables the museum to meet the enormous annual cost of programs and services for all visitors. Here are the best ways you can contribute to the continued success of The Detroit Institute of Arts:

Become a Member

Become a Member or Renew Your Membership

Your membership dues will support special exhibitions and the daily expenses of operating the museum. Whether you visit once a month or once a year, you enjoy the benefits of membership and your support helps to ensure that this amazing museum will remain a vital source of art and inspiration for generations to come.

Make a Donation

Make a Donation

Your generosity makes it possible for the doors to be open and the galleries staffed when guests arrive, and for the building and collection to be protected and secure when you've gone home. Explore the ways you can give to the DIA.

Auxiliaries

Join an Auxiliary Group

DIA auxiliary groups offer members many opportunities to explore their interests, develop new tastes, and get involved in the life of the museum. These volunteer groups allow you to socialize and share your passion for art with other members and staff. We encourage you to become a member of one or more of the groups.
