SUPPORT OUR MISSION

Although the Goss-Michael Foundation is a private institution, whose operational costs are generously covered by the Platinum Trust, your donations play a vital role in providing the funding needed to support our educational programs. It is through your donations that we are able to offer scholarships to students, not only in the DFW area, but also statewide who would like to continue their art education at the college level. Your support also enables GMF to share its collection and programs with visitors from around the world, helping the widest possible audience understand and enjoy contemporary art. With your help we are supporting and inspiring the artists of tomorrow and we thank you for partnering with us to accomplish these goals.
Please visit our website here and click on contact, then click on Support our Mission to found out how to donate.
