Donation Inspires New Membership Program
MAXCares began with a generous offer by a California couple with Meridian ties who discovered the museum and appreciated it so much they became members. Realizing that they wouldn’t be able to visit very frequently, they asked to allocate their membership to someone in the Meridian community who could benefit from it. They requested that The Salvation Army select the recipient. This kind gesture touched the hearts of The MAX staff. They reached out to local nonprofits and donors, creating the MAXCares program.
Financial supporters of MAXCares will help provide one-year memberships to clients of partnering nonprofit organizations, including individuals facing economic, medical, or other hardships.
To participate, simply donate the full amount of a membership or provide partial membership support that can be combined with other donations. A nonprofit organization will then pass the membership to someone who could benefit from the inspiration that The MAX provides. You may choose an organization from the program’s current agency list, or an organization will be designated through a rotation process. Each recipient will receive a membership with full benefits, including free admission, a 10% discount in the museum’s gift shop, and a subscription to PLACE, the quarterly publication of The MAX.
MAXCares will provide each gifted membership to one of the following organizations:
