Individual Gifts

Make a donation toward new acquisitions, conservation projects, or our strategic planning fund. If you enjoy our Fashion Culture programs help support them with a small donation.

You can make a financial gift of any amount and pledge that money toward one of the following areas:

  • Conservation projects that help preserve objects or prepare them for exhibition
  • Educational programs
  • New acquisitions of contemporary and historic costume, textiles, and accessories for study and exhibition
  • Online exhibitions for our website to inspire and educate those unable to visit us in person


Strategic planning initiatives that will enable the museum to have humidity and temperature controls in all the galleries and storerooms and that will allow us to purchase more media equipment for interactive exhibitions.

For information about making an individual gift, please contact the Director's office at (212) 217-4530.
