Gifts in Action


PAFA Educates

100% of PAFA students receive aid, and over $5 million in scholarships are awarded annually. Without the generosity of our PAFA community, this wouldn’t be possible.

PAFA Inspires

Right here in Center City, PAFA tells the story of America’s art and artists through groundbreaking exhibitions and one of the most significant collections of American art anywhere in the world. Your generosity means we can hire top talent to curate our thought-provoking exhibitions and continue to enrich Philadelphia’s communities for years to come. 

Next summer we’ll be organizing a suite of exhibitions celebrating women artists in connection with Vision 2020, marking 100 years since women earned the right to vote.

Support PAFA Today

As the first art museum and school in the United States, PAFA celebrates the transformative power of art and art-making. Your gift sustains our vision of nurturing artists at every turn in their career through our world-class museum and school.
