Giving Circles Donation

An unrestricted donation to the museum’s annual fund of $10,000 or more qualifies the donor to be a member of the Presidents Council, renewable annually. Presidents Council members serve as ambassadors-at-large for the museum and participate in the selection of the annual Maine in America Award recipient.

The Friends of the Farnsworth Collection is a dedicated group of people committed to enhancing the Farnsworth’s collection with generous donations of $5,000 each, renewable annually, thus enabling the purchase of art that might not otherwise be possible. The members meet once a year to view a selection of artworks presented by the museum. They then vote for the one(s) they would like to purchase in the Friends’ name.
