Support The Amistad Center

for Art & Culture

There are many ways to get in touch or get involved here at the Amistad Center for Art and Culture.


The Amistad Center for Art & Culture is seeking philanthropic gifts to support our mission to celebrate the art and culture influenced by people of African descent, through education, scholarship and social experiences. 


We are now in the midst of major societal changes in our nation and achieving racial equity will be one of the most important issues that we all will tackle in the coming decade. The Amistad Center for Art & Culture is poised to play a major role in this change.

Your contribution will support these important initiatives:

  • Increased community art education and cultural programming (both in person and virtual) with a focus on children, teens, and young adults.

  • Digitalization of all 7,000+ pieces of our collection of African American art, books, memorabilia, and artifacts along with research material in The John H. Motley Study.

  • Continuing to provide education around issues of social justice and equity.


Thank you in advance for supporting the work of The Amistad Center!
