2016 Annual Appeal

Give To The Annual Appeal Now

Your gift to the Grace Museum annual fund supports exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year. 

Last year, the annual appeal funded educational opportunities that engaged children and adults alike with 15 award-winning exhibitions, reaching over 60,000 total visitors. In fact, over the last three years our creative programming has grown by 162%!

Help us make a deeper commitment to the arts in Abilene and across the region by making a tax-deductible end of year contribution. It is only through donors like you that The Grace is able to present the powerful, thoughtful work you expect from us. 

We are truly thankful for your help!
