Join the Circles of Support

Your contribution and continuing support is greatly appreciated and helps:


  • Implement our Strategic Acquisition Plan to upgrade the quality, depth, and value of the Jonathan art collections with acquisitions of select paintings by important early California artists.

  • Enhance the ambience and the display of the art at the Jonathan Club through staging, selective reframing, and installation of state-of-the-art, energy-efficient lighting that will showcase the art.

  • Offer Circles of Support members an expanded series of educational and entertaining events including leading speakers, art-themed evenings, and private visits to major art exhibitions, galleries, artist studios, and prominent private collections.

  • Conserve, display and exhibit works from the Theodore Lukits collection entrusted by the late artist to the Jonathan Art Foundation.

  • Expand the awareness and historical relevance of the Jonathan collections through dissemination of our book Art at the Jonathan Club to major art organizations including schools, museums, libraries and colleges.
