WASHINGTON, DC.- In the wake of a recent renovation-related fire, The Phillips Collection launches a micro-donation campaign to raise funds toward repair of the historic Phillips house. Supporters can donate $5 or $10 to the museum by sending a text message from a mobile phone now through the end of 2010.

To make a $5 donation, supporters can text “phillips5” to 20222. To make a $10 donation, they can text "phillips10” to 20222. Supporters should then follow prompts to confirm their gift. The charge will appear on the donor’s cell phone bill or will be deducted from the donor’s prepaid balance. Normal text messaging rates apply.

The fire, which broke out on the roof of the Phillips house on the morning of September 2, was contained and extinguished swiftly. No one was injured. All artwork is safe and secure. However, damage to the upper stories of the Phillips house where museum offices are located was significant and is still being evaluated.

The Phillips Collection has reopened during regular hours, though galleries in the Phillips house remain closed for repairs until further notice. Museum admission is waived for the month of September. All special exhibitions are slated to open as planned, though interruptions to the programming schedule may occur.
