You Matter, More Than Ever

At the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, a tumultuous year comes to a close with overwhelming gratitude for art lovers like you.

Today, more than ever, you matter to us. In 2019 nearly 40,000 students participated in art activities that research has shown improves critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration. You matter to the nine-year old whose fourth-grade class can still experience these safely through a virtual tour.

You matter to our community of over 17,000 member households—who count on you to join your neighbors from all over the greater Kansas City area and ensure a place in the museum for everyone.

You matter to our staff for the gift of time you make with every visit. Your energy as you encounter works of art, beholding beauty around every corner breathes meaning into everything we do.

Most importantly, your donation to the Nelson-Atkins helps ensure our future. Please make your gift by December 31, 2020.


Gifts can be remitted over the phone by calling 816.751.1278 during museum hours.
