EPMA actively acquires works of art related to its prominent collections of American, Mexican, and European art. All gifts are reviewed and acceptance is dependent on internal assessment of the EPMA Accessions Committee and curatorial review.

El Paso Museum of Art Foundation

EPMA accepts all donations through the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation. Founded in 1998, 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.

Chartiable 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 the main lobby of the museum.
