If you enjoy lectures and performances featuring national talent, presentations about Nazi art looting during World War II, the History of Western Gardens lecture series, or meaningful panel discussions like the ones presented in conjunction with LIFT, Whitfield Lovell: Deep River, or Reflections and believe, like we do, that they are a vital part of the Museum’s offerings, we invite you participate in a special Challenge Grant Matching opportunity.
In 2015, the Museum received a prestigious, four-year challenge grant, one of only fifteen granted nation-wide, from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This grant will build a $2 million endowment that will stay in place in perpetuity, and up to 5% of the interest will be drawn out yearly to build sustainability for the Museum and ensure quality programming for years to come. The Museum met last year’s challenge and has until July 31, 2017 to raise the $375,000 in pledges needed for this year’s match. We have already raised $310,000, and we need your help to complete the challenge quickly. Visit the link below to give online today or call the Advancement office at 904.899.6025.
This is an exciting time to build a vibrant, artful, sustainable future for the Cummer Museum. We appreciate your consideration of this chance to extend the impact of your generosity through this matching grant, and for all you do every day to support our beloved institution.
