Support the Campaign

The Reimagine the Campus Campaign:
An $18.5 million undertaking

To accomplish our mission and raise the standards of the exhibition and archival spaces, the Historical Society board and staff conducted a planning strategy. The result was a master plan for facilities and campus created by David Scott Parker Architects.

Through study and diligent exploration in 2014, we engaged Koszyn & Company, a firm specializing in fundraising and capital campaigns for nonprofit institutions, to work closely with board and senior leadership to conduct both a facilities and program expansion review and capital campaign feasibility study.

Anonymous donors have committed to match contributions dollar for dollar up to $6,750,000.

Hear about plans for the new campus in a presentation given at the Retired Men’s Association on December 14.

The Historical Society began the quiet phase of its $18.5 million Campaign in 2015 and launched its public phase, having met its $10 million quiet phase goal, in November 2016.

The Campaign has three fundamental goals:

  1. To raise the funds necessary for campus transformation
  2. To support the expansion of programmatic initiatives and focus on four core elements:
    • Exhibitions and Public Programs
    • Youth and Family Programs
    • Research, Collections and Digital Communications
    • Historic Preservation
  3. To build the endowment
