Ava Gardner Museum

Supporting the Museum


The Ava Gardner Museum is always looking for volunteers to assist in the organization's growth and progress. Volunteer activities include assisting with fundraising, museum docent, step-on guide, working special events, collection care, preparing mailings, data entry, and other office duties as needed. All ages, backgrounds, and experience are invited to help support the museum and the community in a meaningful way.

Ava Advocates

The Ava Gardner Museum has continued to draw national and even worldwide attention with approximately 10,000 visitors each year. The Museum Board of Directors hopes to continue to share this collection with the world but needs the support of Ava Fans (like YOU!) to maintain operation of the museum.

The “Ava Advocate” program is a membership program designed to help finance the continued operation of the Ava Gardner Museum, while at the same time share information about the museum and the life of the actress with her many enduring fans and supporters. For a small annual fee, you can help us continue to preserve and share the Ava Gardner Collection.

Help us say “Bravo, Ava Gardner!”. – Become an Ava Advocate today!

If you are interested in volunteering with the Ava Gardner Museum, Festival, or Ava Advocate program please contact the Museum at 919-934-5830.
