This program provides in-depth training and opportunities to strengthen student research as well as develop public presentation and holistic life skills.
The Wellin Museum Match
To assist the museum in these endeavors, two donors have stepped forward and offered to match gifts supporting the Director’s Discretionary Fund for access and exploration. The discretionary fund provides the Wellin Museum with the financial resources and creative space needed to launch new innovative teaching and learning opportunities, as well as continuing to expand on points of access for all members of the Hamilton community.
Donors who choose to direct their gift to this fund will be matched one-to-one until the $500,000 match is expended.
The Director’s Discretionary Fund will directly impact the student experience as well as raise the visibility for the Wellin. The museum supports and enhances experiential learning opportunities through:
Each spring, a section of the gallery is transformed into an experimental space for students, faculty, and the community to create and present projects inspired by or related to current exhibitions.
Students are availed of special opportunities to participate in the realization of works by world-renowned artists and learn how to manage large-scale projects through mentorships.
- One-to-one matches for gifts of any size are available to add to the Director’s Discretionary Fund
- Pledges should be fulfilled within five years
- Corporate matching gifts can be applied toward the fund
- The match is in effect until the pool of $500,000 is depleted
For those interested in creating a named endowed fund to support the work of the Wellin Museum, your commitment may be eligible for a match. Please work with a Hamilton development officer or contact Stephanie Brady at email@example.com or 207-333-2517 to explore this opportunity.
