The ICA Free Admission for Youth Fund is the museum’s annual fund that directly supports youth and teen programming institution-wide, including exhibitions; performances; educational programming for youth, families, and the ICA Teens; free admission for youth; and more.

Each year the ICA receives overwhelming public support—from members, visitors, patrons of our programs and performances, artists, and educators, among others. This support counts for more than 60% of the ICA’s annual operating budget. Simply put, we couldn’t do it without you. We rely on 100% tax deductible gifts to the ICA Fund to realize groundbreaking programming each year!
