The PAAM Circle

PAAM Circle donations keep daily activity alive and well at PAAM.

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.

While their dollars fund utilitarian necessities, PAAM Circle members enjoy exclusive events throughout the year: sneak peeks to exhibitions, cocktail receptions with curators, seminars with renowned artists and art professionals, and opportunities to engage with like-minded others who share their love and appreciation for the arts. Through these events, PAAM Circle members increase their knowledge of Provincetown as an arts colony join a 100+ year tradition of supporting the arts in Provincetown.
