The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) is a nonprofit organization that relies on a variety of funding sources for its activities. While the federal government provides operating support, additional funds are essential for MoCNA in order to mount exhibitions, provide educational opportunities, and continue to reach new audiences. Your contribution helps this one-of-a-kind contemporary art Museum.

Donations help enable MoCNA to share its world-class exhibitions and programs with visitors from around the world each year, enabling the widest possible audience to understand and enjoy contemporary Native art. There are many ways to give with many benefits and privileges in thanks for your generosity.

We appreciate our members and donors for their loyalty and enthusiasm, and we look forward to working with new friends as we move forward into the future.
