Donations 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.


For more information about how your contribution helps or for other ways to give, please see the Annual Campaign, Membership, Planned Giving, Corporate Support, and Volunteer pages.
