We are thrilled to announce that, with nearly 400 pledges and contributions, we have exceeded our goal of growing our endowment to over $1 million. Thank you to all the donors, listed below! If you do not see your name please contact us at [email protected].
In 2018, NCPH embarked on a three-year campaign to secure the future of the public history community. The goal was to top our endowment at $1 million by the time we celebrated our organization’s 40th anniversary in 2020. The campaign sought to build our capacity and achieve three transformational goals:
- to significantly expand our already-vibrant community through increased professional development opportunities;
- to catalyze our capacity to lead via scholarship, excellence, and best practices in the field through our awards and travel grant programs;
- to increase our fiscal independence.

general NCPH ENdowment Information
Your support enables the NCPH to achieve its mission–promoting professionalism among history practitioners and their engagement with the public. The primary purpose of the NCPH endowment is to generate earned income that can be used to augment NCPH services to its members and the profession.
Endowment support from members and friends provides income that makes possible many of our activities throughout the year. Endowment contributions help make our conference bigger and better each year, enable us to revamp our website and enhance member services, fund advocacy and outreach activities, and most important, support awards that bring students and new professionals to our conference and recognize outstanding scholarship and innovation in public history practice.
There is more NCPH can do with your help. We can
- Fund efforts to make the organization more racially and ethnically diverse
- Support additional travel to the annual meeting for international participants
- Increase travel support for new professionals
- Provide workshops for public historians at every career level
- Maintain the record-setting attendance and wide variety of resources at our recent annual meetings while covering the resulting increases in conference expenses
Your donation will enable NCPH’s committees, staff, and board of directors to create outstanding programs, connect the community of public historians, and better serve students and practitioners of public history now and into the future.
Ours is an ambitious agenda, but then NCPH has been an ambitious organization since its creation in 1980. For four decades NCPH has been dedicated to helping history practitioners engage with the public to create better histories, encourage widespread appreciation for the past, and foster greater historical understanding. Our work as public historians is as important as ever in making sense of events shaping the world today. We are counting on you to show your appreciation for all that public history is and what NCPH does for our profession and our community.
With your help we will continue to build NCPH’s ability to offer leadership in what remains an exciting and expanding field.
