The Foundation is grateful to the generous donors who help ensure that the unique vision of Dr. and Mrs. Barnes reaches more people and increasingly diverse audiences. Individual donations and community support directly affect the breadth and depth of programs that the Foundation is able to offer. Join the Barnes in promoting education and fine arts appreciation by making a contribution today.

Annual Fund

Donations to the Annual Fund are immediately put to use in those areas with the greatest need within the Foundation’s operations. Your gift will go to support quality arts education programs for both children and adults, conservation of the priceless works in our collection, and the development of enriching temporary exhibitions. As your donation goes to the support of our non-profit mission, it is fully tax deductable.

Donate to the Annual Fund online.


Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and mutual funds, are an excellent way to support the Barnes Foundation. Though simple, these gifts provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash. For questions and information about proper procedures, please contact the Development Office at 215.278.7110.


Matching Gifts

To promote charitable giving, many employers sponsor matching gift programs in which they will match their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company offers such initiatives. If so, mail us a completed matching gift form, and we will take care of the rest. Call us at 215.278.7121 for more information.


Planned Giving

As you weigh your estate planning options, please consider including the Barnes. Whether in the form of a bequest or other planned giving variety, you and your gift can contribute to the legacy of Dr. Barnes’s artistic and educational vision for generations to come. Additionally, such a gift would be eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. To discuss planned giving opportunities, call us at 215.278.7111.
