Giving Back

Annual fund raising by the Asian Arts Council has played a significant role in the history of the Museum providing support for:

  • Acquisitions to enhance and deepen collection holdings
  • Publication of scholarly catalogs
  • Research in support of curatorial efforts
  • Conservation and Restoration of objects for display in the Museum
  • Education of Council members, docents and museum visitors
  • Exhibition associated costs¬†
  • Music and dance programs
  • The Museum’s general fund


Although the Museum’s needs change over time, ensuring the safety and future of objects in the collection does not. The Asian Arts Council’s annual membership renewal appeal has a special focus on conservation. Additional fund raising projects include the Annual Heritage Luncheon and Silent Auction as well as bus trips and travel to destinations of Asian interest.¬† Each of these avenues contributes to the ongoing support of the Museum’s Asian art collection.
