Support Us

The longstanding tradition of 'art patrons' who fostered the fine arts, commissioned magnificent works of sculpture, painting, design, and architecture, and sponsored the great artists of the Renaissance thrives today with Friends of Florence. With a rich array of projects that require special restoration attention to ensure their continued appreciation and survival, the need for patrons who care passionately about these treasures is greater than ever.

By becoming patrons of the arts, our donors inspire an enduring commitment to stewardship for future generations and help to preserve Florence’s extraordinary cultural legacy.

Friends of Florence, a U.S. based 501-c-3 not-for-profit organization, raises its entire annual budget from generous individual contributions.

  • 85% of funds raised go to restoration projects
  • Donors may give a restricted donation to a designated project
  • Gifts are fully tax deductible according to the IRS
