The Hood Museum of Art plays a vital role in the cultural life of New Hampshire and Vermont. From annual support for our ongoing operating costs, to named endowments for staff positions and programs, to funding for new acquisitions and exhibitions, to underwriting capital projects like our upcoming renovation and expansion, every gift makes a difference.

Make a gift today through our secure site! You can also become a Friend of the Hood online. For more information, please call the museum at (603) 646-2808 or contact us via email. The Hood Museum of Art is able to accept matching gifts.
