  Annual Fund




As the Kemper Museum gets ready to celebrate next year’s 20th anniversary, we reflect back on 2013—a year that has brought abundant opportunities for the Kemper Museum to engage visitors of all ages with outstanding works of modern and contemporary art. All of this is possible because people like you stepped up with generous contributions.

This past year saw 4,000 school children from 300 schools—more than double the number of school children from 2012— experience docent-led tours and inventive programming at no charge. Another 3,000 children and families participated in storytelling in the galleries, camps, workshops, and the opportunity for young children to experience the Museum with Art(full) Bags. More than 1,400 adults attended artist talks, music performances, and workshops.

At the Kemper Museum, there is no charge for admission, special exhibitions, artist talks, or public programming—even our parking is free! By making a donation today, you will ensure that one of Kansas City’s only entirely free cultural institutions will continue to welcome more than 130,000 visitors annually. Your support also makes possible new ways to reach a wider audience; such as plans next year to launch an initiative for teens from all socio-economic backgrounds, and programming specifically designed for homeschoolers.

This year we have a generous challenge grant from Linda Lighton and Lynn Adkins who will match up to $5,000 in gifts to the Annual Fund. Your gifts double in value! Your $25 contribution becomes $50; your $50 donation becomes $100.

$25 $50 $150 $250

Our mission has never been more important as the Kemper Museum builds on a legacy of cultural and civic engagement. Your 100% tax-deductible gift to the Museum makes this possible. Thank you, in advance, for your contribution to the Annual Fund and for helping us trigger the generous match.
