Help Us Keep Lithography Rolling

Tamarind relies on charitable gift for approximately 30% of its operating expenses

Three programs to support

Charitable tax-dudictible gifts fund many of our educational programs and special projects. Gifts may be made in full to either of these three funds, or a combination. 

Our supporters recieve exclusive invitations to events, including exhibition previews and artist receptions. And, donors who contribute $5,000 or more will have their names engraved in Bavarian limestone on our donor wall at the entrance to Tamarind.

To make a gift, you may call (505) 277 3901 to speak to Shelly Smith, give online through UNMs Secure Site, or send a check and your contact information to: Tamarind Institute, c/o Shelly Smith, 2500 Central Avenue SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
