Your Gift Matters

Your gift will play an invaluable role in the future of the museum and have an impact on all who come to enjoy the Phillips.

The Phillips Collection relies on our members and friends to sustain our ambitious special exhibitions, award-winning education and community engagement programs, and critically-acclaimed Phillips Music concert series. We invite you to consider making a gift to one of our extraordinary programs, and help us share founder Duncan Phillips’s vision of an “intimate experiment station” for audiences of all ages both here at the museum and through activities beyond our walls.
