The World Aids Museum in Ft. Lauderdale is actively contributing to the historical, educational, and cultural landscape of South Florida and beyond. Through hard work and dedication, the Museum has captured the interest of the nation as evidenced by numerous requests for information and articles in the media. Its reach has now expanded to include a member base that has doubled in size and diversity.


The opportunity in 2015 is even more exciting and promising. With support from the Community Foundation of Broward, the Museum has opened its new Research Center to provide access to the most current HIV-related scientific, political and human interest information. The Research Center is available for a naming opportunity.


A very significant goal for 2015 is to further expand the Museum's outreach to the community's youth. In collaboration with the Lynne Warrick Institute, the Museum's staff is targeting High Schools in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Students will also soon be invited to visit a new HIV / AIDS Youth Exhibit which is in development in collaboration with the Children's Diagnostic and Treatment Center. The Museum's new 'Gallery 2' is currently exhibiting the artwork of Broward students who are taking part in the AIDS Awareness Art Contest organized by Ed Sparan.


In order to accomplish the Museum's important work, the Board of Directors has introduced the new 'Charter Club.' The vision is for individuals to join the Charter Club to sustain and support the work of the Museum on an annual and ongoing basis. The goal is for the Museum to raise $7000 in monthly support.


The Charter Club's four levels of membership include:


Ambassador - $1200 or $100 monthly: An Ambassador Level donation brings you and a guest free entry to all functions, unlimited entry to the museum with a guest, special mention in all publications, website, and promotional material, and first notification of special events.
