Your Support Makes a Difference
Your Patron contribution will directly support vital Getty initiatives and programs here in Los Angeles and around the world. Specifically, the Getty Patron Program supports:

  • World-class exhibitions at the Getty Center and Getty Villa
  • Education and outreach programs for 160,000 students per year, from kindergarten through 12th grade
  • Cultural exchanges and international collaborations with leading and emerging scholars around the world
  • Scholarly programs presenting lectures, symposia, and films
  • Cutting-edge research at six Getty Center laboratories where scientists, conservators, and other professionals address the challenges of conserving art, architecture, archaeological sites, and monuments
  • Cultural heritage field projects in countries around the world, including China, Egypt, Jordan, Malaysia, Peru, and the United States

Beginning in September 2021, all Patron contributions will be allocated to Getty’s Museum Arts Access and Virtual Art Explorations programs, which provide free museum field trips and online classroom art experiences to thousands of underserved students in L.A. We realize the daunting pressures schools face, and these programs offer direct, guided enrichment to help inspire the next generation of creative thinkers and innovators.
