Big Day of Giving 

Big Day of Giving inspires tens of thousands of people from around the capital area to support local nonprofits and causes that matter. When you contribute to the Crocker, you help us continue to serve our community with the transformative power of art.

Early giving starts now!

Give from the heART.

Did you know only 11% of California schools meet state standards for arts education? When you support the Crocker, you help us provide life-changing arts education experiences to thousands of students across our community. From thought-provoking Museum visits to hands-on artmaking in our mobile museum, the Art Ark, we provide crucial exposure to the arts for students of all ages. 

Last year, our supporters helped the Crocker inspire 16,369 students from 144 schools across 35 districts! Help us continue to serve our community by contributing to the Crocker Art Museum on Big Day of Giving.
