Dear Friend: Your support means a great deal, especially now as we navigate the impacts of Covid-19. Please note that the UW Foundation continues to issue receipts for gifts to the Chazen, however, we are currently unable to generate membership cards at the museum at this time. We will acknowledge gifts by email, and look forward to mailing printed cards as soon as possible. Our staff is also taking this time to think creatively about how to bring special member benefits to the safety of your home. Please contact Amy Guthier with questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
