Make a Gift to LACMA Fund

April 1, 2024

We are inspired by the many educators and community leaders throughout Los Angeles County and beyond who work to empower young minds to foster creativity, inspire personal growth, and enhance classroom learning. LACMA is dedicated to providing diverse programming initiatives and accessible arts education resources for students and educators through specialized offerings such as:

  • Evenings for Educators—engaging professional development lectures and activities for educators to connect, learn, and take back to their classrooms

  • LACMA Teachable—free online courses that bring LACMA’s collections and exhibitions into the classroom

  • Guided K–12 School Tours—trained docent-led tours that include grade-appropriate activities and questions that encourage close-looking, conversation, and personal connections

  • Creative Classrooms Partnerships—multi-year partnerships with several Title 1 elementary schools where LACMA and partner teachers develop, test, and iterate lessons with students to create flexible, engaging teacher and student resources.

  • And more!

The vital impact of these initiatives is reflected in the following positive and heart-warming responses from Los Angeles educators:

“I can not over-emphasize what kind of positive impact visiting a museum in person makes for my students. They are from underserved and many times economically challenged families and just the trip across L.A. is eye-opening for many. Seeing and hearing many of them say things like they ‘didn’t feel like they belonged somewhere like this’ is incredible. I love seeing their reactions while viewing the art and the surroundings and after hearing them say how much they enjoyed the trip!” 

“Thank you for many years of art-related support. I have found Evenings for Educators and the School Tours very valuable to my teaching practice and make it a point to take at least one field trip with my students each year.” 

We invite you to support these vital education initiatives and all we do at LACMA by donating to LACMA Fund. With a gift of ANY size, you can help us make a tremendous difference!
