|National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge |
We are moving forward!
In the past six weeks, the Yakima Valley Museum has received $207,314 in new gifts and pledges. Thus, we have $797,783 toward our overall goal of $1,500,000, the amount required to meet the 3:1 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Offer of $500,000.
We are not there yet! With your support, we have the opportunity to increase our sustainability by adding a total of $2,000,000 (our $1.5 million + the $500,000 from NEH) to our core endowment. We want to continue to provide education programs and exhibits for our growing audience, protect valuable collections, and maintain the ability to attract and keep a talented staff.
Time is short! NEH has given us an interim deadline of July 31, 2013 to bring our share up to $1.3 million or we forfeit a piece of the match. We obviously want and need the entire match. Thus, gifts or pledges of cash, stock, real estate and other assets would be terrifically appreciated.
