Donate to the Center

Annual donations to the Center are critical to our work in sustaining and interpreting all that Cranbrook has to offer. Contributions in any amount are welcome.

Since its inception in 2012, the Center has had a strong and expanding core of loyal supporters, allowing us to have operating flexibility as well as expand our programs and protect the collections under our care. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize on the Center’s virtual “Donor Wall” those individuals and foundations whose cumulative giving to the Center has exceeded $5,000 in monetary gifts.
