Thomas Cole Historic Site Endowment for Programming

Endowment for enhanced humanities exhibitions, community and school programs, and honoraria for speakers and fellows.

The Thomas Cole National Historic Site (TCNHS) seeks a $300,000 Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create an endowment to support the core humanities activities of the organization. The TCNHS has been committed to the advancement of humanistic knowledge since its inception in 2001, and has been growing its reach and capacity each year. Over the last two years, the organization raised $1.2 million to reconstruct Thomas Cole’s New Studio, a building of Cole’s own design that was constructed in 1846 and, unfortunately, demolished in 1973. The groundbreaking for the reconstruction is planned for June 2014 and the expected completion date is June 2015. The organization is now preparing for the resulting increase in attendance and programmatic opportunities by seeking to increase its endowment from $1.3 to approximately $2.3 million.
