Business Council

What kind of impact does your company want to have in the community? What kind of cultural engagement opportunities do you envision for your employees?

Membership in the Business Council engages businesses of all sizes and from a wide variety of industries in the cultural life of our community and demonstrates a company's commitment to the arts. Members gain special access to our world-class collection, exhibitions, and programs and receive a wide array of benefits for executives and employees—from free admission to invitations to exhibition previews, as well as opportunities to entertain in the Museums’ incomparable spaces.

For more information about joining the Business Council, please contact Suzy Varadi at 415.750.3546 or svaradi@famsf.org.
