Athenaeum Library donations

Donate to the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library


The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library has been able to pursue its mission for over 120 years, and to undergo tremendous growth over the past three decades, thanks to the generosity of its donors. There are many ways you can help ensure the Athenaeum's future and maintain the high quality of its offerings. You may designate your tax-deductible contribution for a certain use, such as Collections, Exhibitions, Chamber Music, Jazz, New Music, or Education. Or you may wish to take advantage of one of our naming opportunities, or purchase a commemorative brick in our courtyard. Businesses and foundations are also welcome to become involved with the Athenaeum through support of the organization in general, or of specific programming. The Athenaeum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible.
