The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is at an exciting moment in its organizational growth and looking for an enthusiastic fundraising professional to take the Museum’s individual giving efforts to the next level as the Individual Giving Manager.

An American Alliance of Museum Accredited institution, The Westmoreland was established in 1959 through a generous bequest from Mary Marchand Woods, a long-time Greensburg resident who wanted her community to have an important cultural institution. Over the past 60 years, The Westmoreland has built a permanent collection of significant American art from colonial to contemporary, with a special focus on paintings relating to southwestern Pennsylvania within the context of the national American art scene.

Today, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art has a new mission and strategic plan that centers on Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion. In November 2018, The Westmoreland eliminated its suggested donation fee as part of our Free Admission for All initiative ensuring that our collections and exhibitions are truly accessible to all. Through new acquisitions, a robust temporary exhibition program, community partnerships, public program offerings, an Artist-in-Residency program, visitor studies, and an intentional internal culture, the Museum works to fulfill our mission “to offer a place to share compelling and meaningful cultural experiences that open the door to new ideas, perspectives and possibilities” that it is truly accessible and equitable for all.
