Over 100 years ago, Samuel S. Fleisher founded what is today known as Fleisher Art Memorial. With extraordinary generosity and kindness, Mr. Fleisher invited “the world to come learn art.”

Today, we count on gifts from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government grants to help Fleisher carry on its important mission to provide access to the arts for everyone, regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience.

There are many ways to contribute to Fleisher, and we are deeply grateful for gifts, of all sizes, which sustain our work.
