Making a Grant to the DMA
Contributions to the Dallas Museum of Art from private and family foundations, government and state granting agencies, and the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs are critical to the Museum’s ability to fulfill its mission and reach its goals. Grants support a wide variety of initiatives. Foundations like the Lupe Murchison Foundation make educational tours possible for Dallas-area school children, and The Meadows Foundation provides the resources necessary to renovate building spaces and install wireless technology throughout the Museum. These are just two examples of how charitable foundations make a significant impact at the DMA for the benefit of the North Texas community.

Government granting agencies, like the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), have each awarded significant grants to the Dallas Museum of Art. Federal grants currently provide the DMA with the resources necessary to renovate and modernize art storage facilities (NEH), produce new online K-12 curricular resources for teachers and students (IMLS), and digitize and provide public access to historical art catalogues (NEA). These federal grant projects attest to the DMA’s capacity and leadership.
Contributions from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and the State of Texas Texas Commission on the Arts both provide resources that are critical to the stable operation of the Museum and the progress of its programs.
We are grateful to each of our funders for their support and recognition.
