Friends of ISAW

Friends are invited to join in the academic life at ISAW, receiving many benefits throughout the year. These include discounts at the gallery store, preferred seating at public events, invitations to annual ISAW events and informal Fireside Chats with our faculty, as well as increased access to the Library and Exhibitions.

Support from our Friends, through annual membership giving, is essential to the mission of ISAW as we seek to foster the study of ancient civilizations across the broad horizons of antiquity. Find out more information about joining our Friends program here.
