Make a Gift

Join the CCP with a gift and support public programs including exhibitions and artist talks. The Center’s 5,000 square-foot gallery hosts an ongoing stream of original exhibitions that travel to venues around the world and a permanent collection gallery features selected highlights of photographic history. To accompany its exhibitions and share knowledge about the medium of photography, the Center offers lectures, tours, and many other educational opportunities. It also publishes exhibition catalogues and books on the history of photography, its theory, criticism, and practice. Your gift will also fund core activities of the Center for Creative Photography including archive acquisitions, research fellowships, digital access and publications. Give today by clicking here.

Additional Giving Opportunities

Naming Opportunities

From equipping the conservation lab to providing state-of-the-art storage, naming opportunities are available to memorialize your family or your organization.


The Center has a number of endowments established by individuals with exceptional vision. These funds welcome your endorsement.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are commitments made by you today but are not actually realized by the University of Arizona Foundation until some future date. They range from simple agreements to complex trust arrangements and can be designated to benefit the Center. Some offer an income for life and they all provide income tax and estate tax benefits.

Photographs and Archives

Offers of photographs and archives are reviewed by the Acquisition Review Committee. For more information, please contact Diana Chavez, Assistant Registrar for Acquisitions at 520-621-7969 or chavezd@ccp.arizona.edu.  

In 2021, the CCP Fine Print Collection will focus on acquiring, by purchase and donation, works by BIPOC artists. This is a serious step in our efforts to expand the way the CCP presents the history of photography. It will allow CCP to represent more diverse perspectives, to create new dialogues between collection objects, and better reflect the experience and viewpoints of our communities. In 2022 and beyond, a new endowment will fund the purchase of works by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and women artists, only; ensuring this expansion is central to our acquisitions process moving forward.
