Burchfield Penney Art Center Year End Appeal


Our annual appeal will be in your mailboxes soon!

We hope we can count on your support this year through a year-end gift to the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

In addition to funding exhibitions by local artists and cultural programming for the Western New York Community, your tax-deductible donation helps support initiatives like our education program. As a result of members and donors like you, The Center has increased its educational programming by more than 500% over the past 10 years. This is an amazing accomplishment that we could not have achieved without your generosity! 

Donate online or contact Shawn Schlifke, Development Associate, at (716) 878-4526 or schlifst@buffalostate.edu.

Thank you for your continued support of the Burchfield Penney Art Center!
