The Associates & Chairman’s Council

Be part of a community of art lovers, learners, and insiders united by their dedication to the museum by joining the Associates or Chairman’s Council.

Your annual gift provides vital support for the museum’s top priorities, including:

Impact of Your Support

Your generous support is an investment in your connection to the museum, Philadelphia, and the arts. An annual gift of $2,500 is the cost equivalent of important conservation research on five paintings in our collection or a series of accessible art-making workshops for visitors with disabilities. Through exclusive opportunities—on online platforms and in our landmark building—you’ll see the meaningful impact of your contribution and learn more about the art and people behind our city’s greatest cultural treasure.

Benefits & Giving Levels

The Associates and Chairman’s Council enjoy all the membership benefits offered at the Patron level, plus unparalleled access to behind-the-scenes content, programs, and other exclusive opportunities such as:

  • Unlimited free general admission

Programs and benefits will be offered virtually and/or in person based on health and safety guidelines.
