Fundraising Events

The Albany Institute of History & Art is supported in part by the generosity of museum members and donors. Throughout the year, the Albany Institute hosts fundraising events including our annual Museum Gala, happening this year on Friday, June 2 at the Fort Orange Club. Our signature Work of Art is held in November. If you would like to underwrite an event, please contact Brian Howard, Development and Operations Manager, at 518-463-4478, x402 or  email
