The Glassell Annual Fund

Gifts to the Glassell Annual Fund support every aspect of the school’s activities, most importantly the dynamic and rigorous instruction in the hundreds of classes offered each year. From the Glassell Junior School to the internationally recognized Core Residency Program, the Glassell School’s rich offerings are made possible each year by generous gifts to the Annual Fund.

Donate to the Glassell Annual Fund today. 

All gifts are deeply appreciated, and Glassell Annual Fund contributions of $2,500 or more confer membership in the Leadership Circle, the Museum’s premier philanthropic society. Leadership Circle members enjoy exclusive benefits and opportunities to engage with the Museum and the Glassell School of Art.
