Support the Princeton University Art Museum
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. —Winston Churchill
The Princeton University Art Museum is widely recognized as one of the finest university art museums in the world, with a collection that is truly universal in scope. To realize its mission as a teaching museum for the University and a premier cultural destination for visitors from around the world, the Museum relies on the ongoing financial commitment of its many loyal benefactors and friends. The generous support of these individuals and organizations makes possible the Museum’s broad range of exhibitions, programs, publications, outreach, and focused initiatives.
The Museum welcomes and appreciates gifts at all levels—large and small. Your gift will strengthen and enhance the Museum, helping to sustain a vital arts institution that is open to all visitors at no charge. In turn, when you make a tax-deductible gift to the Princeton University Art Museum, your generosity will be rewarded with the opportunity to enjoy extraordinary works of art, exciting exhibitions, first-class publications, and enriching educational programs.
