Why Your Gift Matters …

  

The Autry brings together the stories of all peoples of the American West, connecting the past with the present to inspire our shared future.

The annual Gala enhances awareness of the Autry National Center of the American West’s mission and provides essential funding for exhibitions, public programming, educational programs, and research that distinguish the museum as one of the nation’s most unique cultural institutions.

Proceeds support:

  • Critically acclaimed exhibitions such as Empire and Liberty: The Civil War and the West, Route 66: The Road and the Romance, and Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork that engage 180,000 guests annually and capture the convergence of diverse peoples and cultures that define the American West.
  • Family programs and festivals, film screenings, and scholarly lectures that provide context for the Autry’s significant collections and exhibitions and further explore the historical threads that make the American West an endlessly fascinating subject.
  • Docent-led tours and educational programs that enrich more than 40,000 Southern California K-12 students annually, including approximately 15,000 under-served students who receive free admission and transportation via the All Aboard! program.
  • In-school educational outreach programs, Autry in Residence and Classroom Curators, explore exciting new ways of learning history and assist teachers with realizing new classroom learning standards. Autry outreach programs serve more than 14,000 K-12 students in 50 partner schools annually.
