Quillin Society

 Join/Renew Now

The Quillin Society is a dynamic and growing group of committed individuals with a passion for the history and ecology of South Texas. Generous annual gifts provide critical support for the education, research, and public programs of the Museum. In appreciation, the Witte offers Quillin Society members special recognition and invitations to major exhibit openings, and educational and social events throughout the year.

Over the past few years, the Witte has undergone a transformation so bold that we are referring to it as the New Witte. We invite you to join in the Witte’s landmark success with unparalleled access to these new galleries and spaces through the Quillin Club Level, which include Patron memberships and above. Similar to the construction-centered Hard Hat memberships, we are delighted to offer multi-year Club Level commitments of three years at a discount of $500 per year. As the Witte continues to provide exceptional educational programs and exhibits to our community, your support at the Club Level enables us to be a leading cultural institution not only in Texas, but in the United States.  The Board of Trustees invites you to play an integral role in furthering the Witte’s mission and ensuring its relevance to generations to come.
