The Weisman Art Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) university museum whose community of students, faculty, and friends throughout the Twin Cities community shares a belief in the power of creative work and its positive impact on society.

WAM is sustained by this belief and by the generous support of the community. Donors help provide vital funds for student scholarships, outreach, expansion of museum programs, and enhancements to the creative life on campus. Every contribution makes a difference, and annual supporters are essential to the museum’s accessibility by providing free gallery admission to over 70,000 visitors annually, in addition to keeping programs and membership free. Your gift creates opportunities for the art patrons of the future–preparing them to become leaders and innovators in the community and through their own artistic practice.

All gifts are tax-deductible and processed through the University of Minnesota Foundation. For your convenience, consider selecting a monthly option for your annual donation. In addition, many companies will match your contribution to WAM. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please click here to search for your employer.
