The Circles

Your membership in The Circles is a wonderful mix of friendship and philanthropy that benefits the Museum of New Mexico Foundation’s work on behalf of our 13 affiliated cultural institutions.

Members of The Circles give $1,500 to more than $10,000 annually, enhancing our ability to secure exhibitions and education funding, and to provide advocacy for four state museums in Santa Fe, eight historic sites statewide and the Office of Archaeological Studies.

Join and bring your cultural experiences full circle.
