Support Groups

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco benefit from the dedication of our generous supporting organizations. These member-based special interest groups draw individuals together around social opportunities, as well as specific areas of the collections. Participants enjoy a variety of educational and social opportunities, including exclusive events, lectures, and trips.

ArtPoint is a group of young professionals that supports the Museums by hosting an annual program of fundraising events, including exhibition-related lectures, gallery parties, and museum galas.

The de Youngsters program is a new initiative to make the Museums more family friendly. Members enjoy exclusive opportunities to host children’s birthday parties at the de Young, priority enrollment in summer camps, and a subscription to a family-friendly e-newsletter.

AGAC supports the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and organizes a year-round calendar of educational and social events for members, who share interests in prints, drawings, photography, and artists’ books.
