As a Patron, your contributions inspire creativity, learning, and exploration for visitors from around the world.

Your gift of $1,000 or above makes a significant impact on more than 160,000 visitors to the museum each year, encouraging visitors to connect with one other and the world around them through meaningful experiences with great works of art.

Patrons enjoy all Advocate level benefits in addition to unique behind-the-scenes experiences with the collection inspired by your support. All Patrons will be recognized on the museum’s Donor Wall.  We invite you to explore all of the opportunities available and choose a gift amount that is most meaningful for you.

previously “Patron/Curators’ Circle”

Supporters of $1,000 or more will receive an invitation to the popular Patron’s Choice, previously known as Curators’ Choice, as well as invitations to celebrate major exhibitions and installations at VIP opening receptions. New this year, all Patrons will have the opportunity to meet with artists and experts after select public programs throughout the year.

previously “Director’s Circle”

Supporters of $3,000 or more are invited to attend the annual Director’s Dinner on the Sculpture Court, a longstanding tradition of gratitude at the Walters. Patrons at this level may also call to arrange a private curator-led tour of the collection for you and up to 6 guests once per year.

previously “Henry & William Walters Circle”

Supporters at this level are recognized for their passion for the arts and dedication to the Walters collection. In appreciation of your gift of $5,000 or more, you will be invited to preview new acquisitions to the Walters collection and travel with the Walters Board of Trustees.
