ANNUAL FUND

The Hunter is your community art museum. We strive to be accessible to as many people as possible. Your unrestricted, 100% tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund supports our commitment to giving free admission to:

  • All children age 17 and under
  • Active military and their families
  • Families who attend our “Family Fun Days” offered three times a year
  • All visitors on the first Thursday evening of each month

 When you donate to the Annual Fund, you are providing critical operating support to the Hunter Museum’s year-round public programs and educational programs for all ages. Will you make a contribution to help connect people of every background with creativity, knowledge, and ideas?

LICENSE PLATE PROGRAM

The Hunter Museum is one of more than 700 organizations across the state that receives support from the Tennessee Arts Commission (TAC). Through the specialty license plate program, its primary funding source, TAC has been able to provide significant financial support to the museum since 1967. A specialty license plate costs $35 per year, and you can exchange your current plate for a specialty plate anytime. Please help TAC support the Hunter by purchasing a specialty plate, giving one as a gift or purchasing for yourself. Every time someone purchases a specialty license plate in Tennessee, 40% of the proceeds from the sale of that plate go directly to TAC. For each sale of an arts-themed specialty license plate, TAC receives 90% of the proceeds!

#GIVINGTUESDAY

#GivingTuesday is coming! Tuesday, December 3 is a great time to donate!

The Hunter is a member of #CHAgives, a coalition of Chattanooga-based nonprofits working together to promote #GivingTuesday. Did you know Chattanooga is home to one of the strongest #GivingTuesday efforts in the country? Please help us keep the momentum going by making your year-end gift on December 3.

VOLUNTEER

The Hunter is always looking for enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to join the museum. Volunteers are vital in making it possible for the Hunter to offer compelling educational programs for all ages and use art and creativity as forces for positive community change in Chattanooga. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities with time commitments suitable for everyone, including working adults and students.

DONATE THROUGH YOUR IRA

Do you own an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)? Will you be taking a required minimum distribution before year-end? If you are in the fortunate position of not needing your distribution for living expenses and are charitably inclined, you may be able to avoid income tax on your required withdrawal by donating your money directly to a qualified 501(c)(3) organization such as the Hunter Museum of American Art.

 

IRA owners must be age 70 1/2 or older to make a tax-free charitable contribution. Those who meet the age requirement can transfer up to $100,000 per year directly from an IRA to an eligible charity without paying income tax on the transaction. If you file a joint tax return, your spouse can also make a charitable contribution of up to $100,000, meaning couples can exclude up to $200,000 of their retirement savings from income tax if they donate it to charity. Qualified charitable contributions must be made by December 31 each year in order to exclude that amount from taxable income.

 

The Hunter Museum of American Art is a 501(c) (3) organization, EIN 62-0511893. Please contact Toni Martin at the Hunter’s Development Office at 423.752.2043 for more information.
