support SAM

SAM is committed to sharing the transformative power of contemporary art with the widest possible audiences. Your generosity will go a long way in helping SAM create more meaningful exhibitions, events and programmes to spark a lifelong interest in art.

SAM stands united with the rest of Singapore in the fight against COVID-19. Our staff are working behind the scenes to enhance online access to our collections, publications and educational resources. In these challenging times, the arts are needed more than ever to remind us that our dreams and imaginations are not bounded by physical distancing measures.


Your support can be directed towards our building fund which supports SAM’s redevelopment efforts, or our programmes fund which supports education and outreach initiatives.


Thank you for generosity in ensuring the hope of a better tomorrow, realised through the arts.

While we appreciate your generosity, the decision to accept an artwork is subject to the evaluation of our curatorial team based on its condition and relevancy – amongst other criteria.
