Real Property

Artwork that can enhance the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts collection can be accepted as an estate gift.  Please set-up an appointment to have a curatorial review of your potential gift.

Endowment Funds

Your gift of $30,000 or more could create an endowed fund at IAIA that supports student scholarships, a program of study or special opportunity for students and faculty.  We will also accept your contribution to an established endowment.

Matching Gifts

Check with your employer to see if your gifts can be matched.  Your gift has the potential to be doubled!
