Donating to the museum is easy! As a non-profit, our donors are extremely valuable to the operations of the museum as well as the offering of new programs and community outreach.

Providing access for everyone

What’s going on with the driveway? When the city of St. Joseph widened Frederick Avenue in the 1990s, it inadvertently caused our driveway to become too steep and nearly inaccessible for large vehicles, particularly school buses and commercial tour coaches. A graded and level driveway will allow us to make our site fully accessible for all – but we can’t do it without you. Help us finally reach our goal by donating today.

Will you support local arts education? At the AKMA, we foster children’s imagination in art education through our art programs, including Kids Media-Mix-Up every Tuesday evening, Summer Art Camps, and 5th-grade tours for all of the students in the St. Joseph School District.  Your generous donation will help us continue this tradition and provide further arts opportunities for St. Joseph children.
