Wellesley College Friends of Art connects a global network of alumnae, friends, and parents who share enthusiasm for lifelong learning, commit to the Davis Museum as a center of excellence at Wellesley College, and invest in the arts.

Friends of Art welcomes as members all alumnae, parents, and friends. Contributions are tax-deductible, eligible for corporate matching gift programs, and all alumnae donations count toward Wellesley gift totals – including class reunion gifts, membership in the Durant Society, and participation in the “Wellesley Effect” Campaign.
