Foundations play a vital role in supporting the Archives with general operating and project-based funding through a variety of grant-making opportunities. If you wish to invite the Archives to apply for a specific grant with your foundation, please contact the Office of Advancement at 202-633-7989.
We welcome an opportunity to build a partnership with your company. In exchange for recognition and visibility, our partners help sponsor special projects, programs, and events, including our annual benefit held in New York each year. For more information on opportunities to partner with the Archives, please contact the Office of Advancement at 202-633-8768.
Endowed gifts are both a gift for the future and a gift for today, supporting the Archives in perpetuity and providing the donor with long-term recognition and tax benefits.
Planned gifts allow the donor to leave an important legacy while also receiving tax benefits and income for life. Those who include the Smithsonian in their estate plans and notify us are eligible for membership in the Smithsonian Legacy Society.
Please contact the Office of Advancement at 202-633-7989 to discuss endowment and planned giving opportunities.
