The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology has recently been awarded a $400,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant is a 3:1 matching grant, meaning the Museum will be looking to raise $1.2 million in funding to match the award.
The Challenge Grant program is a competitive award, in fact in cycle the Hearst applied for there were 99 applicants and 15 grantees awarded. See full list of applicants.
The Challenge Grant will assist the Museum in leveraging funds towards the Museum’s current fundraising campaign to redesign the gallery and create a dedicated Learning Center at the heart of the Museum, and the creation of a California Indian basket weavers’ garden.
To realize this vision the galleries are currently closed for renovation and we look forward to welcoming you to our new Museum exhibition space.
