Through their generosity, the Bechtler’s financial supporters help ensure diverse educational programs, preserve and interpret the collection and provide an increasingly strong future for this new cultural institution.

Those who seek to deepen their involvement with the museum may consider making tax-deductible financial contributions in several ways:


A gift to the annual fund furthers the museum’s mission, supports the exhibition of world-class works of art and builds programs that benefit Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s cultural community.

All donations to the annual fund, no matter the amount, are welcome and make an important difference in the operation of the Bechtler and the conservation of its collection.

Please consider making a donation.


Gifts of membership are a creative way to support an interest in the visual arts and introduce the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art to friends and family.


Planned gifts become permanent legacies and provide support to the museum generation after generation. Types of planned gifts include bequests, retirement assets, charitable trusts, IRA rollovers, life insurance policies and other types of lifetime contributions.

For more information about making a planned gift, e-mail Bechtler Museum of Modern Art Vice President of Development, Bob Scheer or call 704.353.9216.

All inquires are confidential and without obligation.


Tribute and memorial gifts allow you to honor someone special or express your sympathy by making a gift to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in their name. When you make such a gift, the Bechtler will send a note to the individual being honored or to the family of those memorialized informing them of the gift and identity of the donor. The amount of the gift is kept confidential. Tribute and memorial gifts are 100 percent tax deductible.

To make a tribute or memorial gift, e-mail or call 704.353.9209.
