Leadership Circles

Leadership Circles are our premium levels of membership and provide deep and meaningful engagement with the museum. There are several Leadership Circles available at the PMA, and we’d be happy to help you find the right fit. From The Contemporaries, a fun and vibrant circle comprised on artistically minded 21-45 year olds, to the most exclusive and revered 1882 Circle, where you help define the museum’s direction, ethos, and mission, there is a Leadership Circle for you at the PMA.

Gifts and Donations

There are many ways to strengthen and support the PMA beyond membership. Gifts and donations provide integral support to the museum and and are fully tax deductible. Contributions to our Annual Fund directly support the PMA’s programs and mission. And our Planned Giving Program provides financial support to the museum through wills, trusts, life insurance gifts, and the like, and are effective means of providing tax and financial benefits for you and your family as well for the museum.
