Making History

The Smithsonian has secretly been raising over $1 billion since October 2011 in the largest campaign in history for any cultural institution and the first institution-wide fundraising effort. With the goal to raise $1.5 billion and increase private support across the nation, the campaign has already received contributions from about 60,000 people. The campaign will continue through 2017.
