Suggested donation levels:

Support YOUR Museum

Your contribution to the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art is critical to our success. Thoughtful donations by members and patrons help us keep our five museums in Altoona, Bedford, Johnstown, Ligonier, and Loretto open to the public free of charge. Donations also help fund our world-class exhibitions and innovative Arts-in-Education programs.

Annual Giving Campaign

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art Annual Campaign ensures the support crucial to sustaining the organization. Serving the community through the many educational, cultural, and fulfilling opportunities requires assistance from a range of resources. To maintain free admission to our museums, we provide a diverse range of programming from tours of rotating exhibitions, to event fundraisers, traditional workshops and virtual art camps for attendants of all ages, and more. Explore the pages of this website for more information on these initiatives.

Thank you to our 2022-2023 Supporters!
