Donate

Our donors' generous support makes a difference.

Your gift will sustain and grow the Art Museum's mission, exhibitions, events and collection. Making a charitable donation to the Art Museum through the NIU Foundation develops and supports the university’s educational curriculum and provides opportunities for art education and cultural enrichment through outreach and service to the people of the northern Illinois community.

Please do not e-mail, fax or leave credit card information in a voicemail as that is not a secure method of communication.
