The W.M. Randolph Hearst Foundation Challenges the Albany Institute of History & Art with a $200,000 Grant
ALBANY, N.Y. – The William Randolph Hearst Foundation recently presented the Albany Institute of History and Art with a $200,000 challenge grant. If the community helps raise $200,000 by December 31, the Hearst Foundation will match each contribution dollar-for-dollar. The Hearst challenge grant will provide essential funding for the Albany Institute’s education programs.
“The Albany Institute is honored to have received this opportunity,” said Christine Miles, director. “We hope that this exciting Hearst challenge grant inspires the community to make a contribution. The community has always been incredibly generous and supportive of the Albany Institute. Through this challenge, we look forward to reaching our goal for current and future education program funding.”
Donations made will immediately fund programs for more than 100,000 visitors, including 20,000 school children and teachers, who enjoy exhibition and programmatic enhancements to their museum experience. The Hearst challenge grant will provide funding for the Albany Institute’s education programs in years to come by doubling the existing education program endowment.
