You make it happen

Kemper Museum’s incredible free world-class art exhibitions and educational programming would not be possible without the support of people like you. From one dollar to $1,000 every little bit helps. Perhaps you were inspired by one of the Museum’s Artists Talks, or your children enjoyed the wide variety of thought-provoking programs, such as Camp Kemper or Scavenger Saturdays. Now, you can help us continue our mission with a donation in the amount of your choice!

Each year, nearly 4,000 school children experience docent-led tours, including over 3,000 students from 40+ area schools whose school received reimbursement for the cost of their transportation to and from the Museum. Another 2,800+ children and family members participated in storytelling in the galleries, camps, workshops, a collaborative program for children with and without special needs, and a homeschool program. More than 1,800 adults attend artist talks, panel discussions, music performances, and workshops.

At 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 nearly 100,000 visitors annually.

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 Kemper Museum makes this possible. Thank you, in advance, for your contribution to the Annual Fund.
