2020 Vision: Endowment Campaign for a Brighter Future

Read the brochure to find out more about NCPH’s new campaign to raise $250,000 by 2020! 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, and we aim to top our endowment at $1 million by our 40th anniversary to build our capacity and achieve three transformational goals.


Contributions to the Annual Fund help cover the general operating expenses of NCPH and its programs.


NCPH is building a digital public history hub, an exciting new place that is bringing together tools and resources, networks and people, publications and projects, and we need your help.


The Legacy Circle invites donors who will pledge significant in-hand or deferred donations to ensure the organization can continue to serve public historians for decades to come.

“No organization does more to support its members. Needs get addressed, priorities set, and problems solved. Big ideas get discussed and debated, but practical concerns also receive their due. Four decades ago, historians working outside of academia recognized they needed an organization dedicated to their interests. Today, NCPH continues to fulfill that mission while charting the future of history in diverse settings. If you believe the past matters, NCPH deserves your supportIt is synonymous with everything that has made public history a vital realm of historical practice.
