Ways to Give

Communities can’t reach their potential without vibrant cultural institutions. And cultural institutions can’t thrive without enthusiastic private and public support. In 1941, Ralph and Elizabeth Norton created what has become a cultural crown jewel that, decades later, continues to welcome and inspire the residents of Palm Beach County and beyond. The Norton thrives today because of your support, which takes many forms.

Support a Program or Exhibition

The Norton regularly receives national attention for its original exhibitions. The support of generous donors allows the Norton to continue to create insightful and groundbreaking exhibitions, as well as related educational programming and special events.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is often the perfect way to perpetuate your love of art and establish a legacy. Planned giving includes any major gift that involves financial or estate planning, such as bequests, gifts of securities or retirement assets, life income plans, and gifts of real estate and personal property.

If you are interested in, or have already included the Museum in your estate plans, please let us know, so we can work with you and your advisers to make certain your intentions are carried out. Planned gifts support the Museum today and into the future, and are gratefully recognized with a membership in the R. H. Norton Society.

Gifts of Art

In tandem with the Norton’s transformative expansion, members of the Museum’s Works of Art Committee established the 21st Century Society, an initiative to expand the Museum Collection with gifts of art equal in quality to the outstanding examples donated by Ralph and Elizabeth Norton to found the Museum. By entrusting a work of art to the Norton, you ensure that it will be cared for professionally, exhibited, and appreciated by generations of visitors.
