Named by USA Today as one of the “Top 10 Great Places to See Art in Smaller Cities,” the museum has developed a reputation for presenting art in a thought-provoking yet accessible manner with a strong commitment to Northwest art. Founded in 1935, TAM has strong roots in the community. Along with five other nearby museums and neighboring University of Washington at Tacoma, TAM anchors Tacoma’s lively downtown core.

TAM has an annual budget of approximately $4.2 million, which includes $1.8 from contributed revenue and a $30 million endowment. The primary focus for TAM’s Director of Development is to oversee the major gifts program and to develop and implement a system to identify, cultivate, solicit, and steward a portfolio of individual and institutional major donors and prospects to support an anticipated $15 million endowment campaign in addition to annual fundraising goals.
