Museum Purchases with Funds Provided by Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis

Friends of Art

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the National Committee of Friends of Art, thank you for your support of Friends of Art.  Your commitment of time, passion, and donations will enable Wellesley Friends of Art to continue to be the dynamic organization during its next half-century, 2015 – 2065.

When I am asked the question, why donate to Friends of Art?   I emphasize three benefits that Friends of Art provides Wellesley College and the Davis Museum:

·      Our donations provide the Davis Museum operating flexibility.  The annual donation for fiscal 2016 of $325,000 represents 14 percent of the Davis Museum’s operating budget.  This operating flexibility allows the Davis to sponsor the summer internship program, as well as support strategic acquisitions which enrich planned exhibitions and overall goals.

·      The Davis provides a means to enrich liberal arts learning at Wellesley.  Faculty of all disciplines utilizes the Davis and its collection to enhance the Wellesley educational experience.

·      Membership in Friends of Art allows you to benefit from a community, which offers a means to deepen your connection, to what is happening at the Davis, participate in stimulating programming at the local level, and renew and create new Wellesley connections.

Thank you for your past support, please encourage your friends to join Friends of Art!

Sincerely,

Eileen Conroy '75,  Chair of the National Committee of Friends of Art
