The Aga Khan Museum relies on the generosity of donors to sustain its vision of building bridges between cultures through the arts. Your support helps to promote the understanding and appreciation of the beauty of the arts of Muslim civilizations and knowledge of their contributions to world heritage.

Donations directly support the activities of the Aga Khan Museum, helping to maintain our exceptional Permanent Collection and sustain its roster of exhibitions, education programs, performances, and events. A tax receipt for the maximum allowable amount will be issued by the Museum.
