About the Foundation

El Paso Museum of Art accepts all contributions through the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation.

Founded in 1998, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation is committed to celebrating the El Paso Museum of Art as the cultural flagship of our community and a premiere center for local, regional, national and international art and artists.

The mission of the Foundation is to support the El Paso Museum of Art and its exhibitions, programming and outreach by raising funds for its permanent endowment. While EPMA is municipally-funded and under the jurisdiction of the City of El Paso, Texas, over 15% percent of its financial support comes from the Foundation and independent initiatives.

The EPMA Foundation is a Texas Non-Profit Corporation, a 501(c)(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code. It is organized exclusively for the benefit of EPMA to provide long-term funding for acquisitions, conservation, preservation, education and interpretation, and museum-related functions not provided by the City of El Paso’s operational funding. A board of El Paso citizens governs the EPMA Foundation, with support from committees for development, planned giving and investment, establishing a legacy of passion for art and a commitment to its sustainability in our community.

Charitable giving to EPMA through the EPMA Foundation is tax-deductible, and contributions are recognized on the EPMA website and in print. Exceptional support is also recognized on the donor wall, updated annually, in EPMA’s main lobby.
