Annual Fund

Thanks to your generous Annual Fund gifts, PAAM is a vibrant community organization with an ever-growing national reputation. As a nonprofit membership organization, PAAM relies on the generosity and goodwill of the community for a significant portion of its funding.

PAAM must raise about 60% of its $1.34 million budget from donations by individuals, businesses, foundations and government agencies. This is in addition to what is generated from membership dues, which account for only 6% of PAAM’s income.

Your gift to the Annual Fund:

  • offsets general operating expenses, PAAM’s greatest need
  • assists with presenting exhibitions related to the Provincetown art colony
  • helps PAAM offer art education classes for children, youth and adults
  • allows PAAM to coordinate year-round programming that engages the community

Every gift makes a difference:

  • $50 provides supplies for a members’ potluck
  • $125 pays for heat and lights for an opening reception in January
  • $650 defrays the staffing cost of a members’ exhibition
  • $1,600 supports a student mentor in the youth education program
