Individual Giving

Since its inception in 1991, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) has benefited from the generosity and commitment of art, culture, and social change enthusiasts who have provided philanthropic support to reinforce IMMA’s position as an outstanding cultural institution collecting and presenting modern and contemporary art in Ireland and recognised internationally as a thought-leader in contemporary art practice.  

We are deeply grateful to our patrons, and to those who have made transformative gifts to our institution since our founding, enabling us to enrich our collection, and to deliver world-class exhibitions, community engagement programmes, and artists residencies.  

Creative Catalyst for Change
strategy 2024

As we embark on our new Creative Catalyst for Change strategy in 2024, there are new and increasingly focused opportunities available for sophisticated, strategic, and impact-oriented philanthropists to leave a tangible legacy through support of specific initiatives.  

From 2024 to 2028 we are committed to delivering on the following key initiatives: 

  • A Catalyst for Change: IMMA is a space that acts as a catalyst for creative change and connects communities to imagine a shared future.  


  • A Radically Public Space: IMMA is developing the entire campus as a radically public space where different voices, communities, and ideas can meet, exchange, and generate.  


  • A Centre for Research and Innovation: IMMA is expanding the collection and archives to reflect a greater diversity of art and artists.  


  • A Global Connector: IMMA is committed to increasing the presence of Irish creativity on the international stage. 


Our museum’s fundraising campaigns are aligned with these four initiatives. In each category there are several unique funding opportunities available for the strategic donor who wishes to have a specific impact with their financial support. 

Friends of the Arts

We are also delighted to receive general support from friends of the arts who enjoy being involved in our patron community, and offer a variety of exclusive events, private tours, and engagement opportunities in accordance with our supporters’ needs and interests.
