New-York Historical Society (New York, NY 10024-5152)
Louise Mirrer (Project Director: May 2008 to November 2015)
Renovation Project and American History Education Program

Renovation for expanded education facilities and endowment for partial support of salaries for education staff positions.

The New-York Historical Society has embarked on a $100 million campaign to secure the institution's place of privilege as a key contributor to the lifeblood of the humanities, through innovative educational programming, exhibitions, and the production of new scholarship based on the N-YHS's extraordinary library and museum collections. The campaign focuses on two priorities: renovations to the N-YHS's building and increased endowed support for key positions and programs. Renovations will allow for the expansion of education facilities, including an Educational Resources Center, which will function as a center for important exploration of and discussion around American history. Endowed support for the American History Education Program will further the N-YHS's partnership with New York City schools to assist students in achieving required levels of literacy and historical knowledge through standards-based programs for students and professional development opportunities for teachers.
