Gift of Membership

Gifting a Museum membership is truly the gift that gives back. It is a great way to support the NCMA while also sharing your love of art with someone who matters to you. Membership gifts make a clear statement about what you feel is important—creating community through cultural experiences. Share the NCMA with those meaningful to you, and tell them why “membership matters.”

Every Gift of Membership receives a delightful NCMA-branded magnet set to present to the recipient. Have questions? Email membership@ncartmuseum.org or call (919) 664-6754, and we will be happy to assist you.
