Endowment for staff and humanities programming of the Center for the Constitution at Montpelier.

The Montpelier Foundation is seeking a $1,000,000 grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as a challenge to create a $4,000,000 endowment for the Center for the Constitution at James Madison's Montpelier. The proceeds will be used to fund the salaries and programs of the Center, to guarantee the permanence and national reach of its successful programs for teachers, including such things as the week-long James Madison and Constitutional Citizenship program (now funded by NEH's Landmark Initiative), the Montpelier Week-end Retreats, and in-school programming. This proposal comes at a momentous time in Montpelier's history - a point when the Madison home is being meticulously restored combined with the foundation's strategic establishment of a Center to advance constitutional civic education.
