Giving Types


A direct contribution sustains the ongoing operations of Lux and allows us to develop and enhance our facilities, education outreach, exhibitions, and programming for the public. Tax-deductible donations are accepted as cash, check, credit card or stock.

Leaving a Legacy

Share your passion for the arts with future generations by including Lux Art Institute in your estate plans. Your gift will ensure that Lux continues to make visual art more accessible and personally meaningful to visitors of all ages. There are many creative and flexible ways to make Lux Art Institute a part of your legacy – contact us to find the right way for you.

Company Matching

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs, allowing you to double the impact of your contribution. Contact us to find out if your company is eligible and we will help you through the matching gift process.


Investments are an excellent source for charitable gifts. When you contribute stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities you have owned for more than a year, you generally do not pay any capital gains tax and you receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the gift date. Contact us for more information on the simplest way to contribute securities to Lux Art Institute.

Recurring Gifts

A recurring gift is a convenient, flexible way to make a big impact at Lux Art Institute. Set up a monthly or annual contribution once and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your ongoing support makes a difference every day.
