Friends of the Rahr-West Art Museum
The Friends of the Rahr-West Art Museum will support the Rahr-West Art Museum’s Governing Board in its mission of preserving and enhancing the Vilas-Rahr historic mansion, art collection, programs, and events.
The particular purposes of the Friends shall be:
- To stimulate, foster, and promote public interest in the museum itself and the museum’s collection, programs, exhibits, and events
- To build a strong base of annual financial support for the museum through the sponsorship of annual fundraising special events (these funds will aid and supplement, but not replace, the operational budget support committed and provided by the City of Manitowoc to the Rahr-West Art Museum, a City of Manitowoc facility)
- To provide advocacy in the community for increased visibility, collaborative efforts and sponsorship, gifts, and/or other donations to enhance the Rahr-West Art Museum as the volunteer arm of the museum - the Friends membership
