Donate

The Castellani Art Museum (CAM) relies on the generous contributions from our supporters. As we move into a fresh new year, your support is vital to our success!

Donations assist with the CAM's daily operations and allow us to support our staffing, supplies, and general functions. As an institution that offers free admission and free or low-cost programs, your gift allows us to maintain these vital needs. 

Online donations to the Castellani Art Museum can be made here. Look for the FUNDS tab and use the drop-down menu to choose the Castellani Art Museum as recipient of your gift.

You may also support the CAM with a personal or business check. Checks can be made out to the "Castellani Museum of Art," and mailed to Castellani Art Museum, P.O. Box 1938, Niagara University, NY 14109. Checks can also be received at the Institutional Advancement Office, as long as they are clearly marked with "Castellani Museum of Art."

Your end-of-year contribution is fully tax-deductible and provides much-needed help for our transformations in collections stewardship, exhibitions, and learning programs. Thank you very much for your thoughtful contributions!
