This group of dedicated volunteers is committed to the museum through service and leadership demonstrated in volunteer hours, financial contributions, and the diverse skills shared to create and execute three annual fundraising events; the Festival of Trees, Art in Bloom and our Corporate Lease Program. The Council of 101, since its inception, has contributed over $12 million toward the acquisition of art, exhibitions, facility renovation and museum expansion programs. The Council of 101 consists of approximately 300 provisional, active, associate and sustaining members.

The Corporate Lease Program, administered by Council of 101 volunteers, leases a limited number of prints from this collection to businesses and organizations in Central Florida.
