The Farnsworth is reinvigorating and transforming itself into an even more dynamic ‘gathering place’ for today’s diverse local and regional audience. Two giving circles help the museum with critical needs:
Presidents Council members of the Farnsworth Art Museum represent the key benefactors of the museum’s annual giving program. Members contribute $10,000 or more per year in funds that support the museum’s core curatorial, educational, outreach, exhibition, and public service activities.
In appreciation, Presidents Council members are invited to participate in exclusive programs designed to bring them closer to the heart of the museum, including its collections and staff.
If you would like to make a donation to the annual fund qualifying you to be a member of the Presidents Council, please click here.
Friends of the Farnsworth Collection
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.

Your contribution to the museum in support of these needs is 100% tax deductible. If you are interested in helping the Farnsworth through one of these circles, please contact the Advancement Department at 207-596-6457 ext. 138.
