Donor Circles Council

Established shortly after the Wexner Center’s opening, this core group of approximately 20 individuals serves as an executive committee for the Donor Circles and plays an important role in the development of individual and corporate partnerships among the Wexner Center, the University, the community, and beyond. Donor Circles Council Members are afforded opportunities to learn more about contemporary art and the Wexner Center’s programs firsthand through participation in educational programs and presentations by artists, curators, and art-world personalities.

"It is so fulfilling to support a world-renowned institution that is also an important part of our community."
—Angela Meleca, Donor Circles member

The efforts of the Council are actively focused on expanding the reach of the Wexner Center by cultivating new audiences and helping to build a broader base of community support. Council Members are responsible for the stewardship and recruitment of new Donor Circles Members through engagement in a variety of Wexner Center activities.
