There are many ways to become involved with the museum beyond the invaluable support provided by basic membership. The museum has nine councils that each focus on a different discipline—from curatorship to architecture to theater—and all provide a sense of community and camaraderie to its like-minded members. Additionally, there are a number of membership levels that allow for greater financial contribution, and increased member participation and benefits.
JOIN A COUNCIL
Councils are the most active and dynamic part of our membership, with more than 1,200 museum members electing to join. Participation in a council is the best way to meet other members with similar interests and become involved with activities and events that support the museum's exhibitions and programming.
$2,000 ($1,750 tax deductible)
Two membership cards, 10 guest passes, unlimited admission, invitations to member-only events, 20% discounts at museum stores and the cafe, recognition in the Hall of Donors, and more!
$5,000 ($4,750 tax deductible)
The highest level of membership support is the Friends of the Museum option which includes the listing of your name on a plaque at the facility of your choice.
All membership levels help support the museum’s mission of being the cultural center of the Coachella Valley. But the benefits of membership increase with any upgrade you choose, and each succeeding level contributes that much more to helping the museum achieve its strategic goals. You can also choose the level of participation that most interests you: from being an occasional visitor to an active council member to upper level patron!
