Join A Donor Association

When you join a PAAM Donor Association, not only do you fund magnificent achievements, but you also become part of a community.

Joining a Donor Association brings you closer to the art and artists that make PAAM extraordinary, and your investment in PAAM ensures that we’re able to open our doors every day and remain the anchor of the Provincetown art colony.



Established by the Board of Trustees in 2006, the PAAM Circle is an association of the Museum’s most generous annual donors whose gifts represent their extraordinary commitment to the arts. This philanthropic group’s annual contributions represent PAAM’s largest source of unrestricted funding, and provide the income necessary to serve more than 50,000 annual visitors through diverse exhibitions, studio workshops, concerts, films, and lectures, as well as preserve PAAM facilities and strengthen our Permanent Collection.


BEGINS AT $2,500

Partners in Art increase the breadth of exhibitions by providing necessary funding for PAAM to carry out its esteemed curatorial projects. Partners in Art enable PAAM to realize outstanding curatorial projects by providing funding to defray the extraordinary costs associated with mounting an exhibition. To date, PAAM Partners in Art have been instrumental in supporting several exhibitions at PAAM, including Robert Motherwell, Hans Hofmann and his students, Edward and Josephine Hopper, and Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown.


Legacy gifts strengthen PAAM’s endowment and provide much-needed annual income to an institution you value. Your estate plan can evolve over time, allowing you to create solutions that benefit you, your family and PAAM. There are many rewards for making a gift to PAAM, not the least of which is seeing PAAM use your endowment gift to provide life-enhancing programs to the community.
