Although MAC relies heavily on volunteers and in-kind donations and regularly hosts meetings and events that are free or low-cost to participants, we incur operating expenses for such services as sign-language interpretation, CART, or verbal description to ensure that all attendees at events can fully participate; support for hosting this website and keeping it up-to-date; and the documentation of best practices and development of resources that can be used by cultural professionals to train staff on accessibility at their home institutions.
We appreciate your consideration in making a donation to our efforts at the Museum Access Consortium. The Museum Access Consortium is a volunteer-based association that operates under fiscal sponsorship from City Access New York, a New York-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations to the Museum Access Consortium are tax-deductible.
If you would like to speak with us about making a donation towards a specific sphere of MAC’s activities, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, all other donations will go towards the operating expenses outlined above.
For donations by mail or online, please click here to view our donation form. All checks should be made payable to “City Access New York” but be sure to identify “Donation to MAC” on the memo line. Donations processed by credit card will appear on your statement as “City Access New York,” the organization to which you have made the donation, as City Access New York is the Museum Access Consortium’s 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor.
Upon receipt, all donors will receive a follow-up letter that will serve as a receipt for tax deductions. Many thanks to you for your contributions and support!
