Wende Museum Endowment

Side Bar Image: 

In 2020, Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, pledged $7.5 million in matching funds to establish a Wende Museum endowment. Their generous support will increase the Wende’s capacity to acquire, preserve, and provide open access in perpetuity to historical materials that would otherwise be at risk of neglect, disappearance, and destruction. Arcadia has taken a leading role in securing the institution’s financial sustainability at a time when museums around the globe face dire circumstances.

The Wende Museum would like to thank the visionary donors who contributed to the endowment. We rely upon your generous support to advance our mission and are grateful for the commitment you’ve made.
