Annual Gala

Help us celebrate the power of art and possibility.

This annual benefit brings together a new generation of museum supporters, civic leaders, and luminaries from the Bay Area’s diverse art, design, tech, fashion, and philanthropic communities. Annual Gala (previously On the Edge) raises critical support for a new era of innovative programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco that is inclusive and accessible for audiences from the Bay Area and beyond.

Our inaugural Annual Gala benefit was held on November 5, 2021. A special thank you to the event co-chairs, host committee, and corporate sponsors who made our inaugural benefit a success. With their support, Annual Gala raised more than $1.8M in support of our exhibitions, programming, and ongoing commitment to inclusivity and accessibility.
