PHOENIX (April 9, 2015) –Now celebrating its fifth anniversary, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) continues to offer enriching exhibits, programs and concerts to the community it serves. In honor of this milestone, and as a gift to the community, MIM is launching the “Friends of MIM” membership program on April 20. The program grants complimentary admission, special discounts and many other benefits to its members.
The “Friends of MIM” program offers two membership options. At the $100 “Duo” level, guests receive two unlimited museum admission passes for one year, a 10 percent discount at the Museum Store and Café Allegro, subscriptions to e-newsletters and an invitation to an annual “Friends of MIM” night.
At the $150 “Family” level, guests have access to all of the benefits listed above, plus free admission for cardholders’ children ages 19 years and under, with the cardholder present at the time of visit.
Guests have the option of paying annually or monthly, and both membership levels are fully tax-deductible.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the ‘Friends of MIM’ membership program during such a momentous occasion for the museum,” said Maureen O’Brien, director of institutional advancement at MIM. “These new benefits and opportunities will deepen the community’s appreciation for global music, artists and instruments while increasing the museum’s accessibility.”
The “Friends of MIM” membership program join’s MIM’s existing philanthropic giving program, “Circle of Friends.” Those joining at the $250 level will receive additional benefits, such as free admission for cardholders’ grandchildren (ages 19 years and under), two guest passes and two tickets to each special exhibition in the Target Gallery. Information about higher levels for the “Circle of Friends” program and their corresponding benefits can be found at MIM.org.
