|National History Day Endowment Challenge Grant |
National History Day has been awarded a significant Challenge Grant from Eric Weider, owner of the Weider History Group and member of the NHD Board of Trustees. This grant both pays tribute to the excellent work of NHD and all who participate and offers an unparalleled opportunity to continue its work by building a financially stronger NHD.
Mr. Weider is aware that NHD struggles each year to meet its financial obligations in terms of its own general operating support. The purpose of this Challenge Grant is to assist NHD in a program to stabilize its financial position by creating an endowment -- something NHD does not currently have -- the interest from which will assist it in meeting its annual expenses.
This Challenge Grant was issued with a 5:1 matching ratio, and I am proud and pleased to tell you that $2 million has already been raised What you can do now -- at this turning point for NHD -- is to give generously to help us reach our goal of a $3 million endowment fund for general operating support. The interest from the $3 million endowment will assist us every year by covering a part of our NHD expenses. And, as importantly, it is a step in the right direction toward building a sustainable future for NHD.
