Become a part of our Circles of Giving

Donating $350 or more to Carnegie Museums puts you into one of our two circles of giving: our Patrons Circle or our Donors Circle. You can make your gift online today by joining our Patrons Circle level or our Donors Circle level, or feel free to call us at 412.622.1995 and talk with a live person (we promise!) about your options for giving.

The Carnegie Patrons Circle is a group of individuals who support Carnegie Museums and all its good work in the community through gifts of $1,895 or more. What’s the significance of that “1,895” number? It’s the year Andrew Carnegie—our first major donor—established Carnegie Museums. In addition to membership benefits, donors in our Patrons Circle receive a number of exclusive museum privileges.

Donors of $350-$1,894 become part of the Carnegie Donors Circle and enjoy all the benefits of membership plus a number of special donor privileges.
