Named Museum Positions
When you endow a museum position, you make a gift that will support an important role on our staff far into the future. This generosity is recognized with the opportunity to name the position. In December 2013, the museum celebrated the successful conclusion of The Lenfest Challenge. Launched in 2008 by Museum Chairman Emeritus Gerry Lenfest and his wife, Marguerite, The Lenfest Challenge led to the endowment of twenty-nine positions, through the response of twenty-seven donors to the generous 1:1 match set forth by the Lenfests. In addition to adding more than $55 million to the operating endowment, the museum now boasts a roster of some fifty endowed senior and mid-level staff positions that is among the most talented and sizeable of any museum in the country. Following this outstanding success, additional positions in a variety of departments are still available for naming.
