The American Friends of the Centre Pompidou is an American-based not-for-profit dedicated to supporting the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The Friends' mission is to acquire and encourage gifts of works of American art and design for loan or gift to the Centre Pompidou for its permanent collection. The Friends foster connoisseurship and a dynamic exchange of ideas through special events, exhibitions, and trips for art lovers that offer unprecedented access to artists, private collections, modern and contemporary architectural treasures, and world-class museums in the company of Centre Pompidou curators of modern and contemporary art, architecture and design.

Over $50 million has been raised and over 450 works have been acquired by the Friends for the Centre Pompidou thanks to the efforts of a group of donors and collectors, who are the cornerstone of the Friends' success.
