About Giving to Arts in Health

We invite you to join us in sustaining Arts in Health at Michigan Medicine. Your support for the Gifts of Art program makes it possible to bring the arts into the environment of care to help restore hope, encourage personal agency, and honor human dignity.

The National Endowment for the Arts has designated Gifts of Art as a Best Practices program, and the National Organization for Arts in Health awarded it the top prize in 2021 in the Arts Building Resilience category. Contributions to the Endowment Fund will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5 million.

The endowment ensures that all Gifts of Art programs, including art galleries; performances; and art, music and storytelling at the bedside, will continue into the future. Donations from people like you help make this exemplary program possible. Thank you!

The fund constitutes a gift for endowment, and distributions from the fund will be made in accordance with the University's then existing endowment distribution policy.

All contributions to Gifts of Art qualify as tax-deductible charitable contributions.
