National Patrons

National Patrons are a group of dedicated donors who commit to sustain their generous support for at least five years with an annual gift of $25,000 or more. This ongoing investment ensures that the Museum has the capacity to innovate and respond to the evolving needs of students, educators, leaders, and citizens in an ever-changing world. 

National Patrons receive all the benefits of membership in the Museum’s distinguished Leadership Circle. They inspire others through their generosity and play a vital role in the life of the Museum. They support our ongoing efforts to teach the lessons of the Holocaust, confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.

In recognition of their substantial investment in the Museum, National Patrons receive national recognition in the Museum’s annual report and at events across the country.  They also receive exclusive benefits including invitations to private events, behind-the-scenes experiences, and other unique opportunities to engage with the Museum and our mission. Donors whose gifts total $50,000 or more are honored with a permanent inscription on the Museum’s Donors Wall.
