Thanks to Our Donors

As a private, nonprofit institution, the National Building Museum relies on the generous support of its donors to realize its mission. This support takes a variety of forms, including grants, sponsorships, memberships, volunteer hours, and visitor donations. The Museum’s Board of Trustees and staff are grateful to all of the individuals, foundations, corporations, associations, unions, and government entities who provided the financial support that enables the Museum to raise awareness of and appreciation for the built environment in the past year.

The following donors made gifts of $250 or more during the 2015 fiscal year (October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015). While the following lists do not include gifts of less than this amount, the Museum extends its sincere thanks to all donors.
