Formed in 1992 by Tanya Harroff and Rachel Schneider, the Volunteer Angels is an organization of women who are passionate supporters of art and the Canton Museum of Art—inspired by the Museum's dedication to make art accessible to all through exhibits and programs that foster creative discovery and learning, and connect art to life throughout our community and region.
The purpose of the Volunteer Angels is to honor the numerous Museum volunteers, who each year invest thousands of hours staffing events and programs. The Angels support them through their organization's membership contributions that recognize the labors of love from each volunteer.
Membership in the Volunteer Angels is at Platinum, Gold, or Silver levels. Beyond the membership contribution, the Angels meet once a year for a catered luncheon at a notable home in the Canton community, where they learn how their generosity contributed to engage thousands of people with art experiences during the year. Angels are also made Gallery Circle Museum Members, honored on the Angel plaque in the Museum lobby and in the Annual Report, and they receive invitations to exclusive pre-exhibit openings with the director, artists, and special guests.
In the last 24 years, the Volunteer Angels have contributed more than $750,000 to the Museum. Their generous donations provide unrestricted operating funds for a variety of Museum programs, from exhibitions to education outreach and special events. The Volunteer Angels are essential to CMA's continued excellence.
