Brief History

The Vizcayans raises funds through a series of special events, a tiered-membership program and various initiatives such as Planned Giving and the Endowment Fund.

Although Vizcaya is owned by Miami-Dade County, the Museum relies heavily on earned income from admissions, evening rentals as well as contributed revenue to meet its annual operating budget.  Private philanthropic funds represent an important portion of the Museum’s annual revenue, particularly as Vizcaya’s operating and program costs continue to rise with the hiring of new staff, extensive restoration and capital projects, and the implementation of new educational and curatorial initiatives.

Vizcaya’s many funding needs provide opportunities for donors of a variety of interests to contribute.  While the Museum’s greatest need is unrestricted operating support, donors may also sponsor educational programs and special events, support restoration and capital projects, or ensure the long-term stability of the Museum through bequests or contributions to the Endowment Fund.

Contributions to The Vizcayans are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.  If goods or services are received in exchange for your contribution, the fair market value will be deducted from your total donation and the remainder will be tax-deductible.

The Vizcayans accept personal or business checks, American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit cards, gifts of stock, planned gifts or bequests and in-kind donations.

Corporations may contribute as well either in cash or through in-kind donations.  Recent corporate supporters include American Express Company, which sponsored the Museum’s Free Sundays series; Flor de Caña, which provided in-kind donations of spirits and bar service for The Vizcayans’ special events; and various local businesses that provide annual support by sponsoring one or more tables at The Vizcayans Annual Ball.
