Meet Our Donors
We are thankful for those who have made an estate gift to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Here are their stories.

Conserving Art for the Ages
While much of their work is not visible to visitors, conservators at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ play an essential role in the life of the museum.
VMFA Teacher Programs Inspire Planned Gift
VMFA’s educational mission not only supports central Virginia’s incredible teachers but also introduces thousands of students to an exceptional art experience found through our guided and self-guided gallery tours. These opportunities are made possible with the support of our amazing supporters.
A Gift That Gives Back
As 23-year docents, Frank and Gail Gilmore have made VMFA’s educational mission their own. The couple chose to make a gift to VMFA through a charitable gift annuity because it supports the museum and provides an income stream for their retirement.
Art Inspires Lifelong Learning
Dr. Shantaram Talegaonkar’s commitment to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts stretches from art history classes to serving on the Board of Trustees. He recently included a gift to VMFA in his will that will support initiatives at the museum for years to come.
