Celebrate someone important to you. Honor or remember someone with a special gift to the DIA’s Tribute and Memorial Giving Program!

Contributions to the DIA Annual Fund provide ongoing support for educational programs, exhibitions and expenses associated with operating our museum. Your gift enables us to provide meaningful museum visits for our guests and protect and secure our building and collection. 

Tribute and memorial gifts can be made at any time, for any reason at all. When you give a tribute or memorial gift, an attractive, personalized card is sent to the individual or family you have specified. You will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation and the recipient is never informed of the specific amount of your gift.

Let someone know that you are thinking of them. Surprise a spouse, child, or a friend with a beautiful card, letting them know a donation benefiting the DIA was made in their honor.

Reasons for Giving

  • You can make a tribute gift to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs or any other special event.

Memorialize a Loved One

  • Memorial gifts can be made as an expression of sympathy or to honor the memory of a beloved family member or friend.

Just Because

  • You can let someone know you are thinking of them by making a gift to the DIA Annual Fund in their honor.
