"History is Moving" Capital Campaign: MOHAI Endowment Fund

Endowment for increased collections staff salaries and benefits for enhanced programming at a new facility.

The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) requests a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant of $500,000 toward its "History is Moving" Capital Campaign. After nearly 60 years of serving the community from its current site, MOHAI’s existing 24,000 square foot facility will be demolished to make way for the widening of State Route 520. MOHAI has been given the unique opportunity to relocate to the 52,000 square foot Naval Reserve Armory at Lake Union Park and significantly expand its exhibits, programming, and audience outreach. MOHAI expects to see its annual attendance grow from 60,000 to 120,000 in the new museum. The NEH Challenge Grant and matching funds of $1.5 million will be used to increase MOHAI’s Endowment Fund which will provide an increased and reliable stream of operating funds to support the museum's expanded humanities programming and service to the community.
