MEMBERSHIP | April 2024

At the time of writing this blog, General Membership had received $697,000. The end of March goal was $689,000 putting us ahead by $8,000, with 11 more days to go in the month.

Our annual spring Step Up Campaign us underway. This year, we are inviting members to increase their support in honor of the grand reopening of the Palace of the Governors. We have added Palace-themed thank you gifts as part of the campaign. We have mailed one mailing and will follow up with two emails and one more letter. I will report on the results in the May newsletter.
We recently launched our Member Portal. Here members can download their digital membership cards to their phones and update their information.

We had a wonderful event on March 14 at the New Mexico Museum of Art with the Foundation’s VP of Licensing Pamela Kelly and Lead Designer and Owner of Ernest Thompson Furniture Mike Godwin. Ernest Thompson has launched the Museum of New Mexico Furniture Line. Pieces are hand-made and made-to-order and are inspired by collection pieces in the Museum of Art. A percentage of the proceeds benefit the Foundation.

Mark your calendar for Monday, April 15 for Member Monday at the Palace of the Governors. A kick-off event and sneak preview of the newly restored Palace of the Governors. Members can see the exhibits five days before the Sunday Public Opening.
