Our 50th anniversary is the perfect time to consider making a gift to the Ransom Center. Seeing in these pages what has already been accomplished, imagine what is still to come—and help us make it possible.
Our milestone corresponds with a major fundraising campaign to enhance the Center and its operations. Entitled The Next Chapter: A Vision for the 21st Century, the campaign aims to build curatorial capacity, enhance institutional infrastructure, and fund acquisitions of significant literary and cultural value.
Some campaign achievements to date:
- Fellowship program greatly expanded (Mellon Foundation)
- Norman Mailer archive acquired (Perkins-Prothro Foundation, Cain Foundation, Dorot Foundation, and many individual donors)
- Herzstein Art Gallery renovated and upgraded (Herzstein Foundation)
We hope to raise funds to provide enhanced support for our curators and to further develop our photography collections and programs. Your gifts can help us reach our goals and achieve your own philanthropic objectives.
These initiatives and the charitable gifts that make them possible will prepare the Center to address the research and programming needs of the future, and will keep us in the vanguard of humanities centers worldwide.
If you would like to learn how your gifts can make these and other valuable enhancements possible, please contact Jeff Melton at 512-471-5174.
