Make Your Gift to CCL

When you give to the Center for Curatorial Leadership, your support benefits not just one curator or museum, but many.

In 2007, philanthropist Agnes Gund and curator Elizabeth Easton launched CCL. Now in its seventeenth year of programming, CCL’s innovative and original model encompasses mentorships with museum directors and other creative visionaries, rigorous coursework in leadership and strategic management, and professional networks for support and growth. With over 400 alumni spanning 46 countries, CCL’s undeniable influence has elevated the role of curators in the public eye, deeply impacting a broad swath of the museum field and their communities. 

Your gift builds toward CCL’s vision to shape a generation of leading curators who not only take charge of the art in their care but are also equipped with the training to be moral and equity-based leaders who are well-positioned to anticipate and address the issues and opportunities facing museums today.
