Series 8:Gifts and Funding, 1860-2009
4.1 Linear feet
Boxes 33-37

Gifts and funding files include financial documents, ledgers, legal material, and correspondence concerning the bequests, endowments, donations, and other gifts that financed the operations of the National Academy of Design.
Academy gifts and funding files (subseries 8.1) document estate bequests, donations, and gifts. Estate bequests detail property, trusts, and establishment of awards, medals, or prizes to distinguished artists in the benefactor's name. Donations and gifts can include contributions of money, books, or artwork for the Academy to employ or sell. Notable funds were provided by Arthur M. Huntington, who left the Academy a generous endowment and a 5th avenue property, while also establishing the Fellowship Fund to solicit money from former and prominent members.
School gifts and funding files (subseries 8.2) contain much of the same material found in the Academy subseries, with the distinction that these funds were specifically allocated to support students and school operations. Notable among these are the Pulitzer Prize Scholarship Fund and the John Chancellor Paris Prize fund, both of which were awarded to exceptional art students to help finance their studies abroad. Additional information on scholarship and prize applicants and recipients are arranged in the school series, under student affairs (subseries 12.4).
The series is arranged as two subseries.
  • 8.1: Academy, 1860-2009
