Donor Circles

MODA Donor Circle members provide essential support to the museum and its programs through their generous financial commitment and personal involvement. Donor Circle members make an annual gift of $1,315 or above and receive a variety of exclusive privileges afforded only to our most valued supporters. Members serve as advocates for the museum in its mission to explore the positive impact of design on our everyday lives in engaging, provocative and educational ways.

Donor Circle contributions are the lifeblood of MODA, providing critical annual operating support enabling us to provide exceptional design-centric exhibitions and programming, including the highly acclaimed LEGO Robotics Experience, campMODA serving over 1,000 school-age children throughout the year.

As a Donor Circle member, you will join other prominent Atlanta area design lovers who share your belief in the power of great design.
