Endowment from the Lunder Family
The Lunder Foundation of Portland Maine has recently endowed The Lunder Maine Student Membership Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This magnificent gift from the Lunder Foundation provides MFA access free-of-charge for all Maine students. It represents the Lunder Foundation’s commitment to education and to the people of Maine, and it is a meaningful endorsement of the MFA as one of the world’s great encyclopedic art museums. The Program allows Maine students of all ages in public and private school, as well as those who are home-schooled, to visit the MFA free of charge.
All elementary, middle, and high school principals and teachers should be aware of this opportunity. As of July 1, 2011, any school group leader can visit the MFA’s website to request a visit: http://www.mfa.org/visit/groups/youth. The school’s Maine address will automatically qualify it for a waived admission fee. The Lunder Maine Student Membership Program applies to all of the Museum’s Self-Guided Visits and Guided Tours (see full description of offerings: http://www.mfa.org/visit/groups/all-tours.
