The Albright Board of Trustees, with the assistance of the Development Committee, seeks to increase the resources of the Institute in order to maintain the high level of scholarship of its unique fellowship program. We rely on those who recognize and understand the value of the Albright for that support.

Our goals:

  • Support the scholarly programs of the Institute –  fellowships, library, workshops, lectures, field trips,  excavations.
  • Preserve the historic building complex and expand facilities to meet growing needs.
  • Promote the Institute as an American center for an international community of scholars.

Currently the Albright Institute receives grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State (ECA). It has received grants in the past from the United States Information Agency, the Getty Trust, the Andrew W. Mellon and the Samuel H. Kress Foundations, as well as from private foundations. The Institute is also supported by annual gifts from Albright Trustees, members of the Albright Institute National Council, and from Alumni and Friends of the Albright.
