Fund-A-Need is an important part of our annual Cape Cod Museum of Art Auction Fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds from these contributions help to ensure the future health and stability of this special place.
In years past, Fund-A-Need focused on a singular “Need”. Last year, your contributions raised $47,000 for the Permanent Collection, allowing us to restore the ceramic relief sculpture The Tree of Life by our Museum's founder Harry Holl, in addition to many other important initiatives, ensuring our Permanent Collection remains permanent, accessible, and well rounded.
The pandemic has changed our approach to Fund-A-Need this year. In order for us to respond to the immediate needs of our community, we are asking you to choose from a selection of areas, helping us be most impactful to your artful life, during these challenging times. Your contributions to Fund-A-Need are fully tax deductible.
Below is an outline of each category. I thank you in advance for your support.

Your contribution to this category will go towards an art educator’s compensation, helping us to provide our curriculum to smaller groups of students during this time of physical distancing.
The lifeblood of the Museum - without powerful, relevant, educational and comprehensive exhibitions, we simply would not exist. Supporting our exhibitions will help us realize these costly productions. From transporting artwork from other institutions, to securing a quality juror and curator, to providing informative wall text – these endeavors draw from our limited resources and are expenses that often go unrecognized. For the contribution of $2000 to this category, you or your business can be prominently recognized as an exhibition sponsor for the duration of the exhibition.
The Permanent Collection is our Museum's crown jewel, with over 2500 individual works by locally celebrated artists. Your contribution to the Permanent Collection will allow us to better care for, interoperate, display, and acquire new works with a regional significance.
In order to professionally capture guest speakers, artist demonstrations and classes that we can then share on a broader online stage, the CCMoA needs a digital video camera and audio recording equipment. Providing online education will also require electronic upgrades we are still currently ill equipped to offer. As a result of the Covid closure and due to equipment shortcomings, the CCMoA struggled to provide digital online content. Your support towards these upgrades will give us the tools necessary to adapt to the “new normal”.
