DMFA Awarded Two Grants
A portion of the DMFA's general operating funds for this
fiscal year has been made available through a grant of
$33,460 from the Institute of Museum Services, a Federal
agency that offers operating and program support to
American museums. Additionally, the Texas Commission
on the Arts has awarded the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts a
Major Support grant of $25,000. This grant will be used to
further the Museum's exhibition and education programs.
Endowment for Excellence
A campaign to raise $10 million in program
endowment has recently been launched under
the leadership of George V. Charlton, Chairman
of the Board.
The single largest component of this endowment
will be a $4.5 million Fund for Excellence, the
purpose of which is to stimulate new programs and
provide for a variety of special projects fostered by
DMFA patrons are encouraged to participate in the
Fund for Excellence, and are reminded that due to
new tax laws a year end gift in 1981 has a much
greater tax benefit than a gift in subsequent years.
