About

The Friends of Fenway Court Patron Program recognizes those individuals who support the Museum with unrestricted gifts of $2,000 and above.

Gifts at this level provide vital support to the museum’s mission, helping to sustain the Artist-in-Residence program, present concerts and special exhibitions, expand landscape programming, develop education and community offerings, and preserve the unique collection of treasures that Mrs. Gardner gathered “for the education and enjoyment of the public forever.”
