SUPPORT THE MUSEUM
As southeastern Idaho’s only art museum, The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) is a vital community resource. It is also a nonprofit entity. This
means that the Museum relies on the support of friends like you to allow us to
continue providing stellar exhibitions and educational outreach programs to the region. Your contributions to the Art Museum may make you
eligible for favorable tax benefits that greatly reduce the
actual cost of your donation. This is especially true if you
qualify for the Idaho Education Tax Credit.
Become a member of The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho (TAM) and help us
continue to bring great art exhibits and educational opportunities to southeastern Idaho. Members enjoy
free admission to the museum, monthly e-newsletters, invitations to special events and opening receptions for
exhibits, free admission to lectures, borrowing privileges in the museum art library, and a 10% discount
on classes and museum gift shop items. Membership contributions
(reduced by the value of goods and services received) may be eligible for three tax saving deductions.
