The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted our member non-profits: canceling fundraising events, changing daily operations and beyond. Use this page to see how you can support these community organizations.
Bellevue Arts Museum
- Museum staff are working remotely to ensure that BAM can continue to fulfill its mission of providing a public forum for the community to contemplate, appreciate, and discuss visual culture. Art can offer a sense of relief and sanctuary in difficult times, and for that reason the Museum is offering ways for everyone to experience the world of art, craft, and design from home during this period of social distancing. Virtual tours and fun craft tutorials are available on BAM's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube pages. Bellevue Arts Museum relies on the generous support of individuals like you. You can lend financial support to Bellevue Arts Museum by donating now.
