The Founders Society, formed in 1958, is the longest standing of the FIA's support and fund raising organizations. Governed by a thirty-member Board of Directors, the purpose of the Founders Society is to assist in implementing programs at the FIA, through fund raising and other activities; to promote local interest in works of art; and to acquire, sell, or manage property, which may come by gift, grant, or bequest for the FIA's general benefit. The Society operates a year-round art sales and rental gallery, organizes an annual winter art fair, and coordinates other events and fundraisers throughout the year.
