Make Giving Easy — And Automatic!
The most cost-effective way to support the Farnsworth is by joining our automatic giving program. Your donation to the annual fund is automatically deducted, in monthly or quarterly installments, from your checking, debit or credit card account. These payments continue until you tell us otherwise. It is all done automatically, so there is no forgetting to make your annual fund donation each year.
As a member of the automatic giving program, you will receive annual notification that your support is continuing for another year. At that time, we provide you with an opportunity to increase your giving or offer you the ability to discontinue your on-going support.
You can change or alter your payment schedule at any time.

Monthly giving to the Farnsworth is for me a convenient way of providing a larger contribution to the annual fund than I might otherwise if simply responding to a fall appeal letter. This is an ideal support option for individuals on a fixed income or for whom the Farnsworth is distant. Unable to visit often, I, for instance, miss opportunities to attend fundraising events at the museum. Knowing that I participate in an alternative Farnsworth outreach effort is gratifying.
Maine's landscape has served as a touchstone and haven for multiple artists over the last two centuries. Strengthening institutions which celebrate that phenomenon is an investment in our nation's culture, and provides opportunity for collaborative exhibit and publication ventures that educate.
