    wam fund at worcester art museum

    Now that the Higgins collection is at WAM, we need your help more than ever!

    Our efforts to keep this national treasure in Worcester demonstrate that we take our community role seriously. The integration of nearly 2,000 pieces of arms and armor into our own collection is a significant endeavor that will transform our Museum and guarantee that this institution continues to thrive. Thus, a gift to the Museum and the WAM Fund is an unrestricted investment that works in two ways: it supports all the programs, operations and offerings at WAM, and it also benefits the community at large.

    But, we can’t do it without you. Did you know that every piece of arms and armor from the Higgins needs to be conserved before it is displayed—even Helmutt, our canine mascot? We have specialized conservators on-site who are making sure that these works of art survive for the enjoyment of future generations.  

    The future of WAM is bright: our attendance is up significantly, particularly with families. We are primed to make major changes that will impact the Museum visitor’s experience and the surrounding environs. We have been able to put the Museum on this bold new path because of partners like you! Unrestricted annual support is the catalyst that creates opportunities for innovation.

    If you give $100 or more to the WAM Fund before the end of our fiscal year on August 31st, we will be delighted to mail you two (2) free admission passes.

    Support our community efforts and ambitious endeavors with a gift today—help us as we connect art with individual experiences, joy and discovery!
