de Young Museum

Program Support

To support our mission, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco offer an extensive array of education and public programs for audiences of all ages that complement our special exhibitions and permanent collections.


With their numerous exhibitions and community programs, both the de Young and the Legion of Honor rely greatly on the Fine Arts Museums' Volunteer Council, a vital, 300-member organization that provides visitor services and staff support six days a week.

Annual Giving Coordinator

One of the Museums’ most vital sources of support is our Annual Giving program. This program brings together a dynamic group of individual donors who are passionate about art and dedicated to ensuring that diverse communities have access to our exhibitions and programs throughout the year. These generous individuals are, in turn, enriched by the impact of their contributions on those whose horizons are broadened by their museum experiences.

Annual Giving donors enjoy a host of attractive benefits, including invitations to exclusive events, private tours, and VIP tickets.

Major gifts of support have a significant impact on the Museum’s ability to present new exhibitions, offer the highest-quality of educational programming, and engage audiences in interactive experiences with art.   They enable the conservation of FAMSF’s collections, and inspire capital projects which support asset-building needs.  Major gifts come in many forms and can be made through cash contributions, gifts of appreciated securities, bequests and planned gifts, or in-kind gifts such as contributions of valuable art.
