Donor Circles

What are Donor Circles?

Donor Circles embody the gallery’s most prestigious patron groups. Circles patrons are actively devoted to supporting our programs and other critical operating needs through contributions, sponsorship, and grants.

Why become a Donor Circle Member?

Donor Circle members receive all of the perks and benefits of a traditional membership with Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center.  Additionally, the program provides Donor Circle members with opportunities to engage with the Board of Directors, staff, teaching and exhibiting artists at the Gallery.

Interested in becoming a Donor Circle Member?

In order to become a Donor Circle member, an individual or organization must contribute at least $1000 over the course of a given year.  The Gallery offers many ways to give, so you can choose the option that works best for you and your budget.
