Artwork Donation Policy

A printable PDF version of the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum Donation Policy for Funds Donated for the Acquisition of Artwork or Artwork Donations is available here.

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Charles H. MacNider Museum.  In order to facilitate the donation process the Museum Board of Trustees has adopted a donation policy regarding gifts of artwork or funds designated for the purchase of an artwork. 

The MacNider’s collection has many examples of nationally recognized artists.  The process of collecting a work of art is an expensive prospect, with art values rising drastically in recent years.  The Museum must carefully select pieces that reflect the collecting mission of the institution.

If you have further questions, you may call the Museum at 641-421-3666 and speak to the Director who will gladly answer any questions regarding donations.
