What is a Friend?

The role of a Museum Friends Group  is to support its chosen museum fulfill its mission.  Friends may advocate for the Museum or fund raise via events and programs that may be exclusive to Members or offered to the public. Friends are sometimes given discounted museum entry or their own place to  relax during a museum visit.  Friends are a close member  of a museum community.  Friends often become friends.

AFFM provides support and communication channels between members groups, friends and volunteers within arts and cultural  organisations.  It is unique in that the focus is on supporting the groups that are the backbone of our favourite museums, galleries and libraries.
