As a private, nonprofit institution, the National Building Museum relies on the generous support of its donors to realize its mission. This support took a variety of forms, including grants, sponsorships, memberships, volunteer hours, and visitor donations. The Museum’s Board of Trustees and staff are grateful to all of the individuals, foundations, corporations, associations, unions, and government entities who provided the financial support that enables the Museum to raise awareness of and appreciation for the built environment.

The following donors made gifts of $250 or more during the 2012 fiscal year (October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012). While the following lists do not include gifts of less than this amount, the Museum extends its sincere thanks to all donors.
