“The expansive value of the National Museum of African American History warrants the attention and support of millions,” said Quinetha Frasier, CEO of Atlanta-based FinTech startup MyPledger. “The Ambassadors Program provides a way for people like me to connect to such magnificent work- as a donor.”
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) held a private event at Atlanta’s The Gathering Spot to boost membership of its Ambassadors Program ahead of the museum’s first year anniversary. The invite-only reception earlier this month was a chance for curators to give guests a glimpse of the varied stories that the museum offers.
The national and historic endeavor that looks at the American story through the African American lens created the Ambassadors Program to raise money to sustain the vision and mission of the Smithsonian Institution’s newest structure. Its premise allows those who want to play a bigger role in supporting the museum’s efforts to look at the great legacies that will help society move forward.
