Supporting the Museum
Financial support is given to important Museum activities including exhibitions, acquisitions, conservation, and educational and outreach programming. Each June, the Young Friends Executive Board present funds to the Museum which are a direct result of the annual Rodin Garden Party and Winter Gala fund-raisers, as well as Young Friends membership support. In addition, The Young Friends Fund, an endowment established in 2006, provides support in perpetuity to the Museum. Many beloved works of art throughout the Museum were purchased with donations through the Young Friends program including the piece shown in the image above. Learn more about this and other Young Friends acquisitions here or visit the Museum soon.
