Thank you Individual and Corporate Donors
On behalf of all of us at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your generous donations. Your contributions have already started to help in the cost of shipping, supplies, and distribution on the island. In just under two weeks, we have raised close to $50,000 (Wepa!) towards the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief effort. We will continue to accept monetary donations online and at the Museum.
We would like to thank all of the Individuals and Corporations who donated to this cause including:
- Belmont Bank and Trust
- Byline Bank
- Roeser's Bakery
- Cuban Chamber of Commerce
- Amalgamated Transit Union
- Miranda Family
- Broadway In Chicago
- Rita Moreno
Your collective donations have been distributed in the following ways through our partner organizations:
- The Puerto Rican Agenda towards the Coordinated Relief Effort (generators, water and food).
- New Life Covenant Church towards the purchase of containers filled with supplies.
- With the remainder going to a health mission being coordinated by Norwegian America Hospital.
The recent opening of the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture is a community dream two decades in the making.
It is a dream that has demanded true strength, perseverance and dedication. NMPRAC stands as a magnificent testament to the enduring values and self-determination of Chicago’s Puerto Rican community and the commitment of the many supporters of the arts who cherish cultural diversity in the city of Chicago.
As a nonprofit museum, the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture must rely on the generosity of its friends and supporters to meet the significant costs and personnel needs of providing programs and services, year-round, to thousands of local, national and international visitors.
We invite you to explore this section of the website to discover ways that you can support the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture with both your time and financial resources.
