The Future of the Past | SAH Archipedia

On June 1st SAH launched the Future of the Past Campaign to raise $40,000 by August 31st to complete the second half of an $80,000 matching grant offer from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). I am delighted to report that in this three-month period, through your generosity we raised $62,696, exceeding our goal, and enabling SAH to receive the full $80,000 matching grant from NEH to support SAH Archipedia

The $80,000 raised in donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the NEH in 2019, resulting in $160,000 as part of NEH’s most recent grant to SAH to further expand and update SAH Archipedia content with peer-reviewed building histories, essays, and lesson plans. In addition, the funding will support optimizing SAH Archipedia for viewing on mobile devices and, partially supports our ultimate goal of making SAH Archipedia open access and freely available to everyone with an interest in American architecture.   

The funds raised above $80,000 will be used as revenue that SAH must raise beyond the match to cover the project’s entire three-year budget of $320,641. With the $160,000 raised in the match, an outright NEH grant of $125,000, and other resources, we have almost completed the budget for this major step in expanding the capacity of SAH Archipedia.

We could not have accomplished this without the generous support the 200 plus individuals, foundations, and organizations listed below who contributed to the match. 

The SAH board of directors and staff extend our heartfelt thanks to each of you for helping us achieve this success. We also recognize important milestone gifts for the match from the Americana Foundation, the Philadelphia and Southeast Chapters of SAH, Diane and John Kane, and Maya Manny in memory of her late husband Carter H. Manny, the former director of the Graham Foundation and supporter of the Buildings of the United States project, the foundation of SAH Archipedia

Thank you all for your generosity.

Pauline Saliga
Executive Director, SAH
