University of Mary Washington Arts & Culture is an alliance of eight distinctive sites and programs at Mary Washington: Dance, Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont, Great Lives, James Monroe Museum, Music, Philharmonic Orchestra, UMW Theatre, and UMW Galleries. You may choose to support one, several, or all of these programs with your gift on Giving Day. The entire community will benefit from your generosity!
In the past year alone, UMW students with interest in the arts have directly benefited from 50 scholarships and awards totaling more than $250,000. Your partnership with the University of Mary Washington helps provide a strong foundation for student education, as well as for arts and culture in and around the greater Fredericksburg area.
The entire community benefits from your gifts to UMW museums, galleries, music programs, lectures, theatre, and dance. Patrons whose annual gifts for Arts & Culture total $1,000 and more are invited to receptions and special events throughout the year.
