Institutional Giving

The Mattress Factory museum of contemporary art presents exhibitions, programs and resources that connect audiences with the artists of our time and the issues they address. Since its founding in 1977, the Mattress Factory has connected its community with over 750 artists. Its dedication to developing new ways to engage the public with contemporary art has led to national and international recognition.


As the Mattress Factory celebrates its 40th anniversary, visitorship has climbed to over 103,000 people annually. The Mattress Factory Education Department touches over 30,000 lives each year. The Mattress Factory makes important contributions to community redevelopment, economic growth and the vitality of the Pittsburgh region. Spending by the museum, its employees and visitors results in upwards of $5.8 million in economic output for other Allegheny County businesses, such as restaurants and hotels.


Year-round opportunities for partnership with corporations, foundations and government are available, including involvement in the Mattress Factory's Exhibition and Education Programs.


Qualified businesses can help make Mattress Factory Education Programs possible through EITC Contributions. Corporate memberships are another way to support the museum while rewarding employees, and business entertaining at the museum provides you with opportunities for cultivating contacts and clients in a unique atmosphere.
