Young Friends of the Brandywine

Young Friends of the Brandywine is a membership group and volunteer committee of young adults dedicated to furthering the goals of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art and its programs.


What We Do

The Young Friends strive to promote awareness of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art and its programs by informing other young adults and their families about the work being done by the organization to protect and preserve the Brandywine region, its art and its history.

We want expand and diversify Brandywine’s membership by increasing participation in─and awareness of─the programs of the conservancy and museum and help raise funds to support the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art and its programs.

Ultimately, we hope to develop the next generation and leaders of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art.
