Thank you for your support!
As we close this momentous year, please accept our deepest appreciation for your support in bringing to light the untold stories, sacrifices, and triumphs of generations of Chinese in America. With your participation, CHSA opened the new exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion (CAEI), a gift from the New York Historical Society. After four months of preparations, CAEI opened to hundreds of visitors and rave reviews for the Museum’s 15th Anniversary on November 5, 2016. In addition to the exhibition, we debuted our new Museum Gift Store in the Philip Choy Gallery, and have hired a new team of program staff to provide expanded service to the community.
We also invite your involvement in 2017 as we commemorate the 135th year anniversary of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. Next year will be yet another valuable teaching moment as we share the lessons of our historical experience with the public through our CAEI exhibition, film screenings, book readings, performances, and lectures.
Our efforts are impossible without your continued support as CHSA contributes an important voice to the national dialogue on race and social justice. Your gift will help CHSA to explore new opportunities in 2017 to further this conversation and create an important teaching moment at a crucial time in American history.
Please consider joining us with a gift of $1,000 or more. Of course all levels of contribution are welcome. Recognition of gifts of $1,000 or more will be displayed in the CHSA Legacy Gallery. For $5,000 and above, donors may have an 80-character message on a window tile in the Legacy Gallery.
We invite you once again to be a part of promoting the deeper awareness of this important American history.
