Target Your Gift

Contribute to the future of the Appleton Museum of Art by targeting your donation. Although general cash donations are always appreciated, there are other unique and creative ways to give.


Currently under development, the Appleton’s Sculpture Walk and Garden is intended to be a dynamic space with an engaging collection of large, sculptural works exhibited along a landscaped walkway, featuring scenic viewing areas and educational signage. An open-air pavilion will house a large seating area to accommodate visitors. The Sculpture Walk and Garden will create an inviting outdoor experience for guests, enhancing our status as an arts destination in Florida, and beyond.

We are currently fundraising for the project by offering $100 bricks (8x4in), $250 pavers (8x8in) and $2,000 benches that can be personally inscribed and placed in and along the garden walkway. Pay tribute to your passion for the visual arts, your time as a volunteer, a friend or family member, or commemorate a special occasion. Your generous support, in any amount, will make a true difference!

Join the group of faithful Appleton patrons who have already so generously shown their support by making a charitable donation and leaving your mark on the museum. With a $1,000 gift to the Appleton Museum of Art, you will have the naming rights to one of the individual marble steps on one of two elegant staircases in the recently-renovated lobby. A brass plate installed on the step will designate your gift and can be customized with your name or to honor or memorialize someone special to you.
