Founding Donors

We are immensely grateful to our Founding Donors for laying the foundation for this people-powered oral history archive.  The Founding Donor campaign is currently closed, but stay tuned for future levels.

List of MUSEUM LEVEL Founding Donors:

The Museum Level Founding Donor level will launch in August 2022 and support the next level of The 1947 Partition Archive's development through the mass dissemination of oral histories and important lessons extracted from the collections through a donation of $100,000. Museum level founding donors will be funding important public history work that is critically relevant to our current times, and lay the groundwork for our first physical memorial spaces.
