CAM General

A gift to the general operating fund supports CAM’s mission, enriching our community with high-quality exhibitions, lifelong learning in the arts, dynamic public programs, stewardship and interpretation of its collection.

ART For All

In 2021, the Cameron Art Museum carried out a needs assessment to guide its direction for the next 5-10 years. The results highlighted a disparity in access to arts and culture in southeastern North Carolina, particularly affecting those who would benefit most but can’t afford it. With your support, CAM aims to raise crucial funds for free community days featuring guided tours and family activities, as well as providing transportation for underserved families to participate. Additionally, your contributions enable the CAM education team to conduct on-site art outreach in Wilmington neighborhoods, bringing art directly to the community.


Make a difference with a gift supporting education. Field trips, outreach to under-served populations, professional development for teachers, art history lesson plans, and family programs that use art to teach core curriculum have an incredible impact on the youth within our community.

Examples of how your money could be used:

$100 provides an interactive field trip to 10 under-served youth
$250 provides a class scholarship to a child in need
$500 supports professional development training in arts integration for teachers


By supporting exhibitions, you ensure that CAM continues to bring high-quality visual art to eastern North Carolina.


CAM’s Connections program is a trusted resource for those living with dementia and their caregivers. Your gift makes visits from memory care units and nursing homes possible.

PNC USCT Sculpture Park

Join Cameron Art Museum’s campaign to commemorate the United States Colored Troops and their historic efforts at the Battle of Forks Road on the museum grounds. Your contribution will help us to realize a park, the first of its kind in North Carolina and in the nation, focused on the heroism of the USCT during the Civil War.
