WHATCOM MUSEUM ADVOCATES
Care about the cultural life in our hometown? The Whatcom Museum Advocates (formerly the Guild or Docents) are supporters and ambassadors for the Museum, the city's cultural anchor and hub. The Advocates are here because heritage grounds them, art lifts them and the Museum needs them too.
Founded in 1968, the Advocates is an advocacy group whose purpose is to raise money to help underwrite museum operation costs and provide enriching public programs for museum members. A standing committee of the Whatcom Museum Foundation, the Advocates host museum openings and monthly programs, organizes fundraising and special events, as well as contributing countless volunteer hours in support of the museum staff.
