The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art boasts a volunteer Auxiliary for its Ligonier Valley Museum. The Auxiliary, which consists of approximately seventy members, was founded in 2000 to provide financial and volunteer support for the Museum. The Auxiliary also is charged with increasing public attention on the Museum and helping to broaden its membership.
Since its inception, the Auxiliary has donated more than $48,000 for capital improvements such as painting the Museum interior, repairs to the building’s exterior, and the purchase of outdoor signage and UV blinds. The Auxiliary also has helped fund the annual Garden Party and has been instrumental in the funding and orchestration of the annual Holiday Home Tour. The Auxiliary’s efforts have generated more than $56,000 in fundraising revenues since its inception.
