The Seattle Art Museum Supporters—or SAMS—is a dedicated group of nearly
two hundred Seattle area women who are committed to fundraising for the
Seattle Art Museum. The mission of SAMS is to expand the support of the
Seattle Art Museum through fundraising and promotional efforts and to
provide educational opportunities for its members.
Since its inception in 1985, SAMS has raised nearly $7 million to fund selected Seattle Art Museum
projects, including exhibitions, capital campaigns, arts education,
museum publications, public transportation for school age children and
endowment funds. We educate our members through intriguing monthly
programs in special venues, including private homes and corporate art
collections that are not open to the general public.
Membership in SAMS
is by invitation only.
