Communities can’t reach their potential without vibrant cultural institutions. And cultural institutions can’t thrive without enthusiastic private and public support. In 1941, Ralph and Elizabeth Norton created what has become a cultural crown jewel that, decades later, continues to welcome and inspire the residents of Palm Beach County and beyond. The Norton thrives today because of your support, which takes many forms.
Museum Members provide essential funding for the Norton and its mission. In appreciation for their generous support, all Members receive a variety of exclusive benefits and opportunities.
The Annual Fund provides essential support for the Museum’s day-to-day operations, making it possible for the Norton to present world-class exhibitions and educational programming, and provide outreach to underserved sections of our community. Your Annual Fund gift provides the stability and continuity that allows the Museum to fulfill its mission, and is 100% tax-deductible.
Gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax-deductible.
The Norton regularly receives national attention for its original exhibitions. The support of generous donors allows the Norton to continue to create insightful and groundbreaking exhibitions, as well as related educational programming and special events.
A planned gift is often the perfect way to perpetuate your love of art and establish a legacy. Planned giving includes any major gift that involves financial or estate planning, such as bequests, gifts of securities or retirement assets, life income plans, and gifts of real estate and personal property.
If you are interested in, or have already included the Museum in your estate plans, please let us know, so we can work with you and your advisers to make certain your intentions are carried out. Planned gifts support the Museum today and into the future, and are gratefully recognized with a membership in the R. H. Norton Society.
In tandem with the Norton’s transformative expansion, members of the Museum’s Works of Art Committee established the 21st Century Society, an initiative to expand the Museum Collection with gifts of art equal in quality to the outstanding examples donated by Ralph and Elizabeth Norton to found the Museum. By entrusting a work of art to the Norton, you ensure that it will be cared for professionally, exhibited, and appreciated by generations of visitors.
