Give to the Annual Fund • Support Our Future

November 1, 2018 | | View Comments

Make an end-of-year gift to support the future of Design Museum Portland.


Hi there!

From the products we use, to how we get to work, and the systems through which we share information — designers work to solve problems, innovate, and improve the world around us every day. For 5 years, Design Museum Portland has been bringing innovative programs and concepts to life, from Extraordinary Playscapes, to Bespoke Bodies, to Street Seats. We’ve focused on the transformative impact design can have on education spaces, prosthetic devices, the urban environment, or virtual and augmented reality. Our goal is to feature the transformative power of design and inspire the next generation of creative thinkers.

With your help, we hope to continue bringing impactful exhibitions, events, ideas, and conversations to the public — and expanding our breadth of impact by showcasing more designers from all walks of life. Please consider making a year-end gift — your support for the Annual Fund makes our work to bring the transformative power of design everywhere possible — we have some great benefits listed below to recognize your generosity.

Thank you! I look forward to making 5 more years of design impact with you!

Sam Aquillano, Executive Director
