Your tax-deductible contribution to WCMA—no matter its size—allows us to remain one of the premier academic art museums in the nation.

Note: As of July 1, 2020, WCMA has become an official designation within the Williams Alumni Fund and Parents Fund. Donors can now receive appropriate class credit for their gifts designated to the museum.

Leadership Giving
Donors who designate WCMA through the Alumni and Parents Fund at the Purple Mountain Association leadership levels of $2,500–$250,000 will be included in a new iteration of the internal museum membership group formerly known as the “WCMA Fellows.”

  • A complimentary copy of a recent WCMA publication/catalogue
  • Invitations to annual Director’s Symposium, which highlights exciting projects that WCMA staff and current students are involved in, and features alumni working in museums and affiliated arts fields
  • Priority registration for an annual WCMA trip co-facilitated through the Alumni Travel Office (when the college travel program begins again)
  • Invitations to behind-the-scenes visits, gatherings, and programs with museum staff at WCMA, artist’s studios, and at private collections across the country (virtual gatherings until further notice)
