Annual membership dues and Proprietor assessments cover less than one-fifth of the institution’s operating expense. Gifts to the Annual Fund help make up the difference and fund ongoing efforts to collect, preserve, and maintain the Athenæum’s collections of books, manuscripts, and art. In recognition of their support, Annual Fund donors at the sponsor level and above are invited to the Annual Fund Donor Appreciation Reception.
