This year has brought change – in some form - to every individual, family, business, and school, as well as Charlotte’s community organizations.

We have found new ways to deliver our mission and continue serving communities when our doors temporarily closed. We revised our museum-based programming to be available to all virtually, and free of charge. These programs included Jazz at the Bechtler, Modernism + Film, and Music and Museum. Our staff developed teaching resources for outreach partners and delivered art making kits to youth and seniors to help them stay connected, combat the isolation, and encourage their creativity. And when we could, we reopened our doors with a new exhibition, 1 Cent Life.

The core of our financial support comes from individuals like you who believe in the transformational effect that art brings to our lives. As we weather the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, your gift is more vital than ever and supports everything you love about the Bechtler. If you haven't already, please consider making an investment in the museum through a gift to our Annual Fund. Any size donation you can make will go to support Bechtler initiatives.

Arts and culture are needed now more than ever to help bring our communities back together to heal, reconnect, and rebuild. Your donation supports art’s important role in our community and helps to ensure our stability and resilience now, and into the future.

If you are able to make a gift, you can click here to make your contribution today, call 704.353.9207, send an email to, or mail your check, made payable to “Bechtler Museum of Modern Art”, with “Annual Fund” in the memo line to:
