Annual Fund


PEM Annual Fund

What do the upcoming Turner & the Sea exhibition, monthly PEM/PM evening parties and free admission for children have in common? They are all supported by contributions to the PEM Annual Fund.

Your gifts also create significant and defining moments. Like when thousands of families celebrated the reopening of our Art & Nature Center in October and when members of a local Girl Scout troop earned their painting badges in February.

We are asking friends like you to support these types of experiences — and many more to come — by donating to the PEM Annual Fund.
