Support The Morbid Anatomy Museum in Your End of Year Giving!

If you are a regular reader of Morbid Anatomy, you know that we don't usually do this kind of thing, but it's the end of the year, and if you are looking for tax write-offs for 2013, we would really love it if you would consider the Morbid Anatomy Museum. All donations are now 100% tax deductible, thanks to our fiscal sponsor Brooklyn Arts Council, and it's a very exciting time for us, with many epic changes coming our way.

For those who have not already heard, we have just put down three months rent on a 3-floor, 4,200 square foot former nightclub (!!!) which will become the Morbid Anatomy Museum headquarters. This new museum will house not only our extant lecture and workshop program, but also an expanded Morbid Anatomy library and permanent collection, a café serving beer and wine, a gift shop, and an exhibition space hosting temporary exhibitions of overlooked and forgotten artifacts from private collections. Our first exhibition will be devoted to devoted to Victorian anthropomorphic taxidermist Walter Potter. To learn more about the museum, you can read this lovely piece on DNAinfo; also, stay tuned for stories in the Wall Street Journal and  BBC's The World coming in the days and weeks to come.

With all of these changes, now would be a particularly powerful and wonderful time to make a donation to the Morbid Anatomy Museum. All donations will go directly towards building out this new space into the most beautiful and amazing incarnation possible. They will also, of course, win our undying gratitude.

You can donate to The Morbid Anatomy Museum by clicking here. If you're interested in donating $1,000 or above, please email info [at] to learn about our founding donor levels which will not only enshrine your name in the museum for all time (!), but will win you loads of special perks.

Thanks very much for your consideration, and very happy holidays!

Morbid Anatomy
