SUPPORTING THE MINT
As supporters of the Mint Museum, the Young Affiliates raise funds to support a variety of Mint initiatives, such as art acquisitions, education programs, operating expenses, and outreach. We are dedicated to enhancing the cultural life of Charlotte through our financial contributions to the Mint Museum.
From enjoying signature events such as the Derby Days to participation in Artitudes events, your support adds up! Be sure to contribute to the lifeblood of a museum that will give back to the Charlotte region for years to come.

During the 2013-14 year, the Young Affiliates will focus on supporting the Mint’s 2013-2014 exhibition Bearing Witness: Sonia Handelman Meyer And The New York Photo League with a donation of $20,000.
The Annual Fund
The Young Affiliates also support the Mint’s greatest needs through The Annual Fund, which addresses the most critical needs of the museum. These needs include the following.
DYNAMIC EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Each year, the Annual Fund helps hundreds of gifted students and dedicated teachers engage with the world of art. This support ensures that The Mint Museum will continue to serve as an outstanding resource for our educational community and children.
ESSENTIAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH
At the heart of The Mint Museum’s work is its efforts to reach broad and diverse audiences who will become engaged with the museum. The Annual Fund will help support these important outreach programs.
The Annual Fund ensures that the museum attracts and retains the most talented professionals in the field, as personnel expenses are among the highest in the annual operating budget of the museum. This support allows The Mint Museum to more strategically allocate these much-needed resources.
The Annual Fund strengthens The Mint Museum by providing operating support to present the highest caliber exhibitions to the community.
INNOVATIVE RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP
The Annual Fund provides key funding for a variety of important research initiatives, which create a distinctive, multifaceted experience for audiences. It also provides unrestricted funds to support library resources, for example.
