$30,000 Richard S. Reynolds Grant

The Menokin Foundation is thrilled to announce a new grant received in the amount of $30,000 from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation. This grant will support the capital campaign to save Menokin.

Specifically, it will help fund the archaeology and stabilization of the southeast corner of the house scheduled to start in July, as well as the beginning construction of the Menokin Glass Project in 2017. We are so grateful for this support from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation!

In addition to supporting the urgent need to save Menokin, the $30,000 grant from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation helped the Menokin Foundation to meet the 1:1 match for a $300,000 challenge grant from the Cabell Foundation. This challenge grant was awarded in November of 2015 and has helped the Menokin Foundation to raise significant support for the capital campaign to save this National Historic Landmark for future generations.

We are grateful for this support of Menokin and the opportunity to discover what this house and property can teach us now and into the future.
