Corcoran End of Year 'Annual Fund' Request

A Message / Request from Paul Greenhalgh, Director and President, of the Corcoran Gallery Art / College of Art + Design

As I sit here, adjacent to the crowds queuing to get into our gallery, I realize that the lively bustle of the crowd in the atrium is giving all of my colleagues a new sense of optimism and pride in the Corcoran.

The galleries are looking very sharply designed; the building looks cleaner and grander by the day; the ranks of our membership are swelling to a new size; we are approaching our education and outreach activity with new-found confidence and vigor. We are arriving in a good place.

Your commitment to the Annual Fund is vital. This fund is the foundation of all we do. It enables us to install world class exhibitions, expand the college by offering new degree programs and scholarships, repair and restore our National Historic Landmark Building, and support our community outreach programs.

We all know that the coming period is absolutely key for the future. We are only beginning the journey that will take the Corcoran to places it has not been for a hundred years. We will make the coming year into one of the best in our recent history.

Make your 100% tax-deductible gift to the Corcoran Annual Fund by December 31.

Thank you and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year.

Paul Greenhalgh
Director and President
