NEH grants Ransom Center $500,000
to establish exhibition endowment

The Ransom Center has been awarded a $500,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to establish an endowment that will sustain and enhance the institution's exhibition program.

The grant will support a range of activities, including facilitating long-range planning, creating teacher training workshops related to future exhibitions, fostering collaboration with other institutions, and supporting print and online publications related to the Center's exhibitions.

The Ransom Center has four years to match the NEH's $500,000 challenge grant with $1.5 million in private contributions to create a dedicated $2 million exhibition endowment.

"This NEH award is validation of the strong work the Ransom Center does in interpreting its collections for wide and diverse audiences," said Ransom Center Director Stephen Enniss. "It will enable us to build on that past success and sustain this vital program for years to come."

To donate, please contact Ransom Center Director of Development Margie Rine at 512-471-9643 or margierine@austin.utexas.edu.
