Holy City Sinner: International African American Museum Announces $1 Million Gift from The Duke Endowment

The International African American Museum (IAAM) is the recent recipient of a $1 million grant from The Duke Endowment, the largest private foundation in the Southeast. The grant includes $750,000 in unrestricted funding and $250,000 for the museum’s endowment. The latest gift follows a $1.25 million donation from The Duke Endowment in 2020, prior to the opening of the museum. It comes just months after the museum was named one of the Top Ten Best New Museums in the nation. Since its opening in June 2023, IAAM has welcomed more than 135,000 visitors.

“Both of these accolades are signals of the museum’s growing popularity,” said Dr. Tonya Matthews, IAAM president and CEO. “This $1 million donation from The Duke Endowment signifies a pivotal moment for the International African American Museum. This milestone underscores the museum’s appeal to significant donors and acts as a powerful catalyst for future philanthropy,” she noted.
