Auxiliary Board

About the Auxiliary Board
The purpose of the National Museum of Mexican Art’s (NMMA) Auxiliary Board is to engage young professionals in the work of the museum by raising funds and awareness. The group was launched in 2015 and members were instrumental in the promotion of the Museum’s first
Día de los Muertos: Love Never Dies Ball Fundraising event. In addition to this signature event, the Auxiliary Board plans social and fundraising projects and members volunteer on an ad hoc basis throughout the year.
Auxiliary Board Membership
Those invited to join this group are roughly between the ages of 25 and 40 and are primarily young professionals. Terms of service are one year in duration and renewable annually if membership requirements are met. It is expected that an active Auxiliary Board member of the National Museum of Mexican Art participate in the following manner:
  • Submit a completed application
  • Give or get a minimum of $250 annually (ticket sales, donations, etc.)
  • Participate in monthly working committee meetings as available
  • Attendance at all quarterly general meetings is strongly encouraged. However, attendance at a minimum of two meetings is required.
  • Submit and update mailing lists, and recruit friends and co-workers for the various Auxiliary Board events.
