Organized in 1956, the Auxiliary supports The Mint Museum by raising money to support educational offerings for the community and to fund acquisitions for the Museum's permanent collection. The Auxiliary has grown from a small group of 60 women to 600 members spanning seven generations. To date, the Auxiliary has donated over $15,900,000 to The Mint Museum including funds and acquisitions. The six-decade partnership between the Mint Museum and the Mint Museum Auxiliary has been rich, strong, and beneficial to both the Museum and the city of Charlotte.
A prerequisite for membership in the Auxiliary shall be an interest in the Mint Museum and a willingness to participate in programs and projects of the museum, especially those sponsored by the Auxiliary. Active Members are encouraged to volunteer for an Auxiliary event, an Auxiliary committee or at the Mint Museum. Dues are $100 for Active Members and $125 for Associate Members. In addition to Auxiliary dues, all members are expected to maintain a membership at the Mint Museum.
Our membership application IS NOW OPEN for our 2023-2024 class. Our Board of Directors voted on applications at our September 11. Any applications received after September 11 will be reviewed at our February 2024 board meeting.
