The museum follows current UVA COVID-19 guidelines.


Gifts to the museum bring the highest caliber of art to our University and Charlottesville communities. By contributing to the The Fralin Fund, the museum's annual fund, you join committed donors whose gifts support all of our general operations, including fun and engaging exhibitions, innovative educational programming for all ages and state-of-the-art technological advances. Donations of all sizes support an admission-free museum that’s open to the public, working to inspire nearly 30,000 visitors each year. 

Please consider joining our growing number of supporters, through a tax-deductible gift today!

Your generosity makes a difference! A few times a year, we’ll also ask you to support the museum by making a gift to The Fralin Fund, the museum’s Annual Fund (16377). The Fralin Fund supports the museum's exhibitions, programs, lectures, collections, greatest needs, and more. When you make your gift, you can designate which of the above areas you want to support. Contribute to The Fralin's continued growth and success by making a tax-deductible gift to The Fralin Fund today! 

If your current or former employer matches gifts to colleges and universities, you can leverage your gift to the museum. These programs double, and in some cases triple, the impact of your gift! For information on how to facilitate a matching gift, or to search for your employer, please visit UVA's Matching Gifts.

For your reference, the museum's tax identification number is 54-6001-796.

Bequests & Planned Gifts

Planned gifts such as bequests, real estate, retirement plan income, and life insurance confer significant tax advantages for the donor. A charitable gift annuity or trust may provide the donor with income for life, while at the same time supporting the museum's needs.

Memorial Gifts & Tributes

Memorial gifts and tributes are a lasting and meaningful way to honor friends and art lovers, because they support the work of the museum. Gifts may be directed to specific funds or programs, or may be made to The Fralin Fund with an unrestricted designation. Your contribution will be acknowledged with a personalized card sent to the honored individual or family, without reference to the amount of the gift. In addition, the name of the individual being remembered will be listed in the museum's Annual Report.

Corporate Partnerships

The Fralin's corporate partnership program presents an opportunity for businesses and corporations to support the museum's operations, programs, and exhibitions. We invite your business to engage with the museum’s wide audience circle and the greater cultural community in Charlottesville. In doing so, businesses enjoy public recognition, entertaining privileges, branding opportunities and free employee admission.
