Anne E. McCollum

Chair, Board of Trustees

Anne is committed to access and equity for all in the arts and in art education.

After a career in finance focused on the creation of financial products for the retail market, Anne now divides her time between Philadelphia, PA and Nantucket, MA.

A life-long-learner, Anne is an avid reader and traveler. She is extremely curious and devoted to new experiences. She will try anything once and endeavors to learn from these experiences and the people she meets in her travels.

An engaged philanthropist, Anne seeks to create new opportunities within established organizations while also providing support for general operating expenses. At PAFA, Anne created the PAFA Fine Arts Venture Fund - a group of dedicated donors who support the costs of producing artwork or the artistic endeavors of PAFA’s students who apply to have their proposals juried by established artists.

Anne collects contemporary art from established mid-career and emerging artists across the world.
