Annual Fund

The American Academy in Rome is a privately funded institution that relies on the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations. Contributions to the Annual Fund provide critical unrestricted operating support, furthering our core mission: to support artists and scholars, living and working as a community in Rome.

The Academy presents a full schedule of public events each year in Rome, including concerts, conferences, exhibitions, lectures, and readings.
