Leadership Circle

Join like-minded individuals who believe in the importance of art in our community and make the museum a priority in their philanthropic giving. Through the generosity of Leadership Circle members, the CMA remains free for all visitors. Gifts to the Leadership Circle membership program help the Cleveland Museum of Art advance its mission to create transformative experiences through art, "for the benefit of all the people forever.” 

Leadership Circle members enjoy a more intimate connection with the museum through a variety of unique benefits, including invitations to exclusive educational programs developed to expand and deepen their knowledge of the CMA, behind-the-scenes experiences, and curator- and director-led travel opportunities. Leadership Circle members enjoy all the benefits at their level of giving and below.
