Donor Recognition

How we recognize your support

SFAI’s donors are a diverse and inspiring group of entrepreneurs, teachers, artists, craftspeople, tech innovators, philanthropists, designers, and more. 


SFAI’s individual donors are valued members of a community that dares to push boundaries, spark meaningful experiences, and forge new paradigms that will shape our world. Your contribution is recognized in many ways, including in SFAI’s Annual Report and in SFAI’s regularly updated list of Donors and Sponsors.


SFAI partners with a diverse array of institutional funders who provide vital support for educational and public programming, exhibitions, events, and other SFAI-led initiatives.
