About


This month, in celebration of the Colby College’s True Blue Challenge, Friends of Art is joining the movement to prove what’s possible when a community comes together to elevate its impact. 

If Friends of Art secures 150 donors between February 1–28, $15,000 will be unlocked to support the Colby College Museum of Art. There is no better time to maximize the power of your gift!

For more than 60 years, the Colby Museum has dedicated itself to serving Colby students and the community by offering bold art experiences to friends from near and far. Friends of Art provides critical support to the Colby Museum, ensuring academically robust and engaging exhibitions in addition to providing free and accessible community programs for all. 

Make your gift. Inspire your friends. Spread the word through social media.

If you have any questions, we're happy to help. Please contact the Colby Fund office at 1-800-311-3678 or colbyfund@colby.edu.
