The Fund for HRM
The Fund for HRM: Expanding the View broadens the possibilities of what the Hudson River Museum will be in the twenty-first century, by increasing our reach, strengthening our impact, and creating relevant experiences that diverse audiences value.
The Fund provides essential support for the Museum’s continued growth and leadership. It allows us to realize our vision to be a leading cultural institution in the region, and to serve as a model of excellence to all of our patrons, welcoming them, delighting them, and creating new learning opportunities on every visit.
Having celebrated the Museum’s 100th anniversary in 2019, we have a proven record of achievement and deeply compelling programming reflective of the cultural issues of our time. The Fund for HRM allows us to continue this work and expand the views in our galleries, on our walls, and for our visitors.

Endowed Professional Positions and Programs
Endowed professional positions and programs contribute substantially to the mission and vision of the HRM. An endowment for key leadership positions—including the Director and CEO; Chair, Curatorial Department; and the Assistant Director, Education—ensures that HRM can attract and retain the best museum professionals in the country. Support of programs, such as our Junior Docent teen leadership program, allows the museum to expand its impact throughout our community.
Art Collections Fund
This fund provides for the acquisitions of works of historic and contemporary American art to the collection that further reflect the diversity of our community, the issues of our times, and support local and emerging artists. Additionally, this fund supports the digitization of the collection to facilitate scholarly study, institutional loans, and ongoing preservation and conservation of significant works in the collection.
Fund for Historic Preservation and Care
This fund supports the care of our Gilded Age home, Glenview, on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as our iconic 1969 brutalist building, the Amphitheater, the West Wing, and all the spaces where our community and expanding audience gather.
Science and Sustainability Innovation Fund
This fund enriches our STEM programming and our commitment to educate our audiences about science, astronomy, climate change, and the history and ecology of the Hudson River through Hudson Riverama teaching gallery and the HRM Planetarium, the only public planetarium in Westchester County.
Naming opportunities large and small have also been established throughout the Museum—ranging from seating in the HRM Courtyard to native and sustainable landscaping to dedicated collection or exhibition galleries. Opportunities also include distinguished program and exhibition sponsorships.
We are grateful for the opportunity to share our expanding views and to discuss The Fund for HRM with you. In all we do, we take our mission to engage, inspire, and connect diverse communities through the arts, sciences, and history seriously.
We welcome further discussion. For additional information on ways to make an impact please contact Robert Panzera at email@example.com or (914) 963-4550 x218.
