When the American Museum of Ceramic Art moved to its second and current home more than a decade ago, we secured a $2.2 million mortgage to make this critical transition possible. Over the past 10 years, through contributions from generous supporters and monthly payments, we have steadily reduced the balance to $725,000.

Fast-forward to September 2024, when the current loan must be renegotiated. We see a special opportunity to pay off the balance. If this happens, the museum will celebrate our 20th Anniversary on stronger financial footing than ever before and be able to direct more resources toward supporting the ceramic arts.

Our ability to serve the surrounding communities is due in no small part to the extraordinary 51,000-square-foot building acquired in 2011. Moving to the historic former Headquarters of Pomona First Federal Savings and Loan building provided us with a facility that helped fulfill founders David and Julianne Armstrong’s dream when AMOCA opened its first exhibition in 2004. Over the years, a significant portion of the annual operating has gone toward mortgage payments, but with your help, we could be debt-free by September and avoid a much higher interest rate.

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of ten remarkable donors, the remaining balance now stands at $350,000. Just imagine what we can accomplish without the mortgage payments. Will you help to pay off the mortgage and join us in reimagining AMOCA’s future?

Thank you!
