Ways to Give

A donation to the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts is the most comprehensive way to support the Center. Help make connections with the community, support programs and events, underwrite educational programs, “adopt” one of Ruth Funk’s signature creations and much more. Gifts to the Center are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Adopt-A-Coat Sponsorship NEW

In honor of its fifth anniversary on the campus of Florida Institute of Technology, the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts (RFCTA) is pleased to announce the Adopt-A-Coat sponsorship program!

Now you have the opportunity to support the care of the Ruth Funk Center’s growing permanent collection and the strength of its educational programs. Benefits of your $100 tax-deductible donation include a commemorative certificate, signed copy of Cloth and Culture by Ruth Funk, recognition as an Adopt-A-Coat Sponsor and exclusive invitations to the Center’s events.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees, doubling or sometimes tripling the impact of your support. If your company is eligible, please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. Please keep in mind that some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Honor Gifts

An honor gift is an especially significant recognition of an esteemed family member, colleague, friend or mentor. Contributions are made in the name of the significant individual to commemorate the impact they have on the donor's life. It can be an outright contribution or an endowed gift that will recognize the honoree in perpetuity. Honor gifts can also be made to celebrate a special occasion or event.

Bench Recognition Program

Honor a friend or family member with a custom plaque installed on one of the Ruth Funk Center’s gallery benches. This limited opportunity allows individuals to be recognized as a practical yet integral part of the museum. It also provides a space for recognizing loved ones and other forms of dedications.

For your tax deductible donation of $250, the 3”x 5” plaque will be inscribed with an engraving of your choosing and can accommodate up to 125 characters.
