Gifts to the Annual Fund support essential operations that enable SDAI to advance contemporary audiences, artists and art work with funds where they are needed most.  By making a gift to the Annual Fund, you are not only supporting the core activities of SDAI, but you are also furthering our mission and empowering our future.  Gifts of $100 and higher are recognized on the SDAI digital donor wall.

An official gift receipt will be mailed to you upon receipt of your donation. You may decline these privileges and receive full tax deductibility. Donors who contribute through a donor-advised fund, charitable trust, foundation, or an IRA are not able to receive these benefits. However, you may personally pay separately to enjoy these benefits of your choice.
