Support the Freer|Sackler

Donate Now »

Free of charge and open 364 days a year, our museums, with their world-renowned collections, exhibitions, and public programs, offer inspiring encounters with Asian art and cultures for diverse audiences. The Freer|Sackler is more than just the nation’s museums of Asia art: it’s where Asia meets America.

Your gift  to the Freer|Sackler promotes the diverse arts of Asia. While the federal government provides 30 percent of our annual budget for basic operating expenses, your donation directly supports our exhibitions, public programs, and art conservation initiatives. Gifts at every level are vital. Please make a gift today to support Asian art.

Whatever you value most—quiet time for looking in our galleries or opportunities to explore new perspectives through exhibitions, music, and film—we offer transformative experiences of Asian and American art. Direct your gift to the programs that mean the most to you.
