The Museum’s Auxiliary Board offers a variety of opportunities for emerging professionals and philanthropists who love Mexican art and culture to volunteer in support of the Museum. The Auxiliary Board is made up of a group of dynamic professionals who are passionate about NMMA’s mission.
The purpose of the National Museum of Mexican Art’s Auxiliary Board is to support the National Museum of Mexican Art and its Board of Trustees through fundraising and community engagement. The Auxiliary Board fosters the growth of professionals into philanthropic leaders.
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. Most recently, the Auxiliary Board has successfully raised funds to purchase artwork for the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Additionally, the Auxiliary Board has added a second fundraising event: Copitas de Sol, a summer mixer that celebrates agave spirits.
Those invited to join this group are roughly between the ages of 25 and 40 and are primarily emerging 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 $500 annually (ticket sales, donations, etc.)
- Participate in at least one working committee
- Attendance at all quarterly general meetings is strongly encouraged. However, attendance at a minimum of two meetings is required.
- Recruit friends and co-workers for the various Auxiliary Board events.
