Museum Program Support

University art museums can inspire object-based teaching and learning that transcend disciplinary boundaries, extending from the humanities to the sciences and engineering.

—Princeton University President Shirley M. Tilghman


As part of the University’s recent capital campaign—Aspire: a Plan for Princeton— which ended on June 30, 2012, the Princeton University Art Museum has been engaged in a fundraising effort to secure key staff positions, to grow its programming endowment, and to obtain essential support to meet its ongoing program needs. Alumni and other friends, as well as foundations and government agencies have provided meaningful support for a range of Museum priorities as part of this campaign, helping to strengthen and enhance existing programs and making new endeavors possible. The Museum thanks all of its many benefactors for their philanthropic vision and generous support.

The Museum must continue to rely on external sources to fund the bulk of its programmatic needs and we remain focused on securing these resources through a combination of endowment and expendable funds. To learn more about the Museum’s funding priorities and naming opportunities, please contact the Museum’s Associate Director for Institutional Advancement, Nancy Stout via email or (609) 258–5826.
