Now More Than Ever Your Support Makes a Difference

Cultural institutions like the BMI are reliant on visitors, school groups, and event rentals to generate income for the educational programs and experiences we are known for. Help us to continue to inspire tomorrow’s workers by ensuring that the stories of the laborers and entrepreneurs who built our city are preserved for future generations.
