Honor someone special, a loved one's memory, or a special occasion

An age-old question answered! What to get the person who has everything? Consider making a gift in honor of a family member, friend, or colleague who believes in the power of investigating the human experience. We’ll send you a tax-receipt and your honored-one a letter letting them know of your generosity.  Similarly, gifts in memory of special people offer a unique way of celebrating a loved one’s legacy. So that others will learn of your thoughtfulness, tribute gifts are acknowledged in our Annual Report.

"Our history is part of the civic glue that holds our nation together, and we’ve taken it for granted. We should be exploring our traditions, our diverse heritage, and all the fun, amazing things people do and have done—these are the things that both set us apart and bind us together."
