Annual Giving
At The Dalí, we educate and delight visitors by sparking curiosity and igniting a love of learning every single day. The Annual Fund makes it all possible.

The Annual Fund covers expenses for our programs and educational activities. It keeps the storm blowing at the Rainy Rolls, the Kahwa coffee flowing at Coffee with a Curator and the wheels spinning in the minds of the guests who visit us each year. It’s the engine that enables us to annually:

  • Conserve, restore and care for our continually aging collection.
  • Host 10,000 students on free field trips;
  • Conduct nationally recognized programming for students of all ages, teachers and families and through our Education Departments programs like Innovation Labs, Coffee with a Curator, and Jr. Docent Art Camp;
  • Train thousands of teachers to improve the way they teach Surrealism in the classroom;
  • Provide 45,000 students at 88 schools a hands-on arts experiences focusing on the imagination-shaping significance of dreams, math and science in Salvador Dalí’s art through The Dalí on the Fly Art Mobile.

With your annual giving, The Dalí also provides an overall economic impact to the greater St. Petersburg/Clearwater area of more than $161 Million and prompts direct spending in our community of more than $81 Million each year.

The Annual Fund is a crucial source of income that is used to support all of The Dalí Museum’s activities. Therefore, every gift, no matter the amount, is integral to our continued success.

Other Ways to Give

IRA Gifts
If you are 70½ or older, you can make a contribution of up to $100,000 annually from your IRA account to support the mission of The Dalí and potentially receive a tax benefit.

A donation transferred directly from your IRA administrator to The Dalí is generally not considered taxable income on your federal income tax return, but it does count toward your required minimum distribution. As always, please consult your advisors with our Tax ID # 59-2015192 to determine if this type of gift is right for you.


From your Donor Advised Fund
A donor advised fund (DAF) is a type of charitable investment account that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to recommend grants to charities of your choice over time.

Granting to The Dalí through your DAF is simple and easy. You can recommend a gift to The Dalí today, or on a recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually) to support our programs. Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a recommendation through the DAF Direct
