Georgia Historical Society expansion gets boost from Delta Air Lines Foundation

Posted By on Wed, Oct 24, 2018 at 5:53 PM

The Delta Air Lines Foundation has awarded the Georgia Historical Society’s Next Century Initiative $500,000 "to propel the Society forward in anticipation of the next 100 years," GHS announced today.

The Delta gift is a response to a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to help complete a $3.5 million capital campaign for renovation and expansion of the GHS Research Center in Savannah.

GHS recently received a $500,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities—one of the first awards made under the NEH’s new Infrastructure and Capacity-Building Challenge Grant program.

The NEH grant requires GHS to raise matching funds totaling $1.5 million (three non-federal dollars for every dollar of federal funding) in order to receive the full value of the award from the NEH.

“We are grateful to Delta and The Delta Air Lines Foundation for their belief in the future of our state and their investment in history education,” said Dr. W. Todd Groce, President and CEO of the Georgia Historical Society. “Because of their generosity, GHS is well on its way to renovating our Research Center and expanding our educational mission across the state.”

The Delta Air Lines Foundation is a nonprofit corporation formed in 1968 to enhance Delta's charitable giving.

    Stacey Abrams appears ready to break that mold. Not only because she’s notably not a member of an established political family, but because among other positive qualities, she likes campaigning, and she’s really good at it.
