Non-profit organizations, like the Muscarelle Museum of Art, are largely financially based on endowments from generous donors. These endowments are monetary donations that can fund specific interests or the general goals of the institution. The Museum is constantly seeking private individuals and groups to provide endowments to aid in the pursuit of bettering our collection, exhibitions, and educational programming. Philanthropic giving to the Museum is an inspired way to spread the joy and experience of art to the community. With these funds, the Museum is allowed a greater ability to provide quality exhibitions to its members and visitors, fund research regarding the permanent collection, and further educational outreach to the public.
Endowments help sustain the Museum, and ensure that funds will be available in the future, to maintain and expand the quaility of exhibitions, programming and the visitor experience.
There are several endowments to contribute to, including the Exhibitions Endowment, a fund set up to help bring high quaility exhibitions to the Williamsburg community and The College.There are also select opportunities to create a named endowment for support of our professional staff and gallery space.
