The McKim & Morgan Society
The McKim & Morgan Society is named for Charles Follen McKim and J. Pierpont Morgan, founders of the American Academy in Rome. Their visionary leadership created the Academy, located it on the highest hill within the ancient walls in Rome, and began the endowment that established the Academy and helped to assure its permanence.
The McKim & Morgan Society is comprised of individuals who have made a commitment to the future of the American Academy in Rome by including the Academy in their estate plans, and have provided gift documentation to the Academy. Members include those who have written a charitable gift to the Academy by bequest, made a life income arrangement for the benefit of the Academy, or named the Academy as beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.

Society of Fellows
The Society of Fellows, which traces its origins to the organization in 1910 of the Association of the Alumni of the American Academy in Rome, is composed of all Rome Prize Fellows. A council elected by the members represents the views of the Society of Fellows in regard to significant concerns of the Academy and serves as a liaison between the Society and the Academy.
Corporate support is vital to the American Academy in Rome’s mission of advancing the arts and humanities. The American Academy in Rome invites the support of corporations who wish to contribute to the Academy’s Fellowships, program of events, scholarly resources and operations.
