Dear Friend,

From prehistoric discovery to present-day conservation, imaginative exhibitions to outer space exploration, every incredible moment at the Smithsonian in 2023 shares a common thread — you.

This year, Smithsonian supporters like you helped achieve:
  • Groundbreaking Science – You helped Smithsonian experts discover the first effective bacterial probiotic for treating and preventing stony coral tissue loss disease, find a potentially volcano-covered Earth-sized world, and produce cutting-edge science to support Panama’s expansion of the Banco VolcĂĄn marine protected area in the Panamanian Caribbean.
  • Stunning Exhibitions – Thanks to supporters like you, art and history abound at the Smithsonian, including fully reimagined modern and contemporary galleries at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the first major exhibition in the United States dedicated to Anyang – the capital of ancient China’s Shang dynasty and birthplace of Chinese archaeology – at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art.
  • Adorable Moments – You helped celebrate incredible milestones in conservation at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, including the birth of a critically endangered western lowland gorilla and a litter of cheetah cubs, a vulnerable species.
  • Virtual Transformation – Your support led to an increase in online exhibitions and resources that are freely available to researchers, teachers, and learners around the world, including 30,000 bees digitized from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History collections, and online exhibitions for the Afrofuturism exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Dorothy Liebes exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
Every one of these remarkable moments is a testament to what your support makes possible. That's why the Smithsonian National Board has created a Challenge Fund Drive goal of $300,000 — to keep the Smithsonian at the forefront of scientific advancement, artistic achievement, and educational excellence into 2024 and beyond.
