Current-Use Gifts

By giving current-use funds, you sustain our core mission of providing transformative encounters with original works of art. Through current-use and membership gifts, we raise the funds necessary for maintaining our collections, our facilities, and our educational programming.

Current-use funds allow the Hood Museum of Art the flexibility to support unique program proposals and take advantage of opportunities as they are presented. These funds may be applied to:

  • maintain professional memberships,
  • sustain curatorial research,
  • prolong the cycle of student-oriented programs, and
  • hire/maintain temporary staff for short-term projects.

Current-use funds are allocated and distributed at the discretion of the museum’s director.

Make a gift through our secure site today! For more information about current-use gift opportunities at the Hood, please call the museum at (603) 646-2808 or contact us via email.
