Give

Gifts to the Wadsworth Atheneum allow us to maintain the high standards of artistic excellence and engaging programming that the public has come to expect from America’s oldest public art museum. Your donations help us to protect and conserve existing works, acquire new works, sponsor special exhibitions and enrich our community through art appreciation and education. There are many ways to provide the museum with financial support.

For more information about giving to the Wadsworth Atheneum, please contact Kristyn Ribera, Stewardship Manager, in our Office of Institutional Advancement at (860) 838-4080 or via email.
