Providing a Future for Students of the Past Campaign a Success
The Board of Governors of the Decorative Arts Trust is honored to announce the successful conclusion of a $2M campaign to raise endowed funds in support of the Emerging Scholars Program (ESP). Titled Providing a Future for Students of the Past, the campaign commenced in 2017 and was achieved through contributions from more than 200 donors.
The largest fundraising effort mounted by the organization to date, the generosity of Trust members and a small group of private foundations and charitable funds ensures the ESP’s future in the years ahead. Upwards of 50 emerging scholars benefit from the Trust’s support in a typical year.
A grant of $175,000 awarded earlier this month by a private foundation helped push the Trust to the finish line. This grant is directed in support of the Curatorial Internship Program, the flagship of the organization’s annual portfolio of funding for graduate students, young professionals, and partner organizations throughout the museum sector.
The Decorative Arts Trust thanks the generous donors who made this achievement possible. Read more about this exciting announcement on the campaign webpage.
