Donate to Support Doors Open

Help keep Doors Open Free

The NEA grant requires us to raise $25,000 in matching funds from foundations, corporations, and friends like you. Our goal is to raise more than $10,000 in individual contributions for Doors Open.

It costs more than $121,000 to stage Doors Open—this amount includes marketing, rent, utilities, insurance, software, and staff salaries. The printed Doors Open event guide costs more than $17,000 to produce. While Doors Open is only two days a year, HMI staff work on this event year-round, scouting new locations, securing siles, preparing grant applications and analyzing attendance data to share with funders. This year we have more than 30 new siles to explore and have a new spotlight neighborhood, the Near West side.
