Felix is six. Standing amid a group of red-shirted apprentices, he announced that he was going to work at the Museum when he grows up. He may not understand that DJ* (now 19, and with us since he was six,) will be well beyond college when he begins his apprenticeship at age 13. But Felix knows that what DJ, Ali and the others do is good, and that it will be here for him in 7 years. And that he will be here for us. Felix has long vision.
Each year we write to thank you for all that we have accomplished with your support and to ask for your continued help. It’s an annual Appeal, but Felix has reminded me that it has longer meanings.
When we ask ourselves, where should I invest?, we look at Felix and all children and know that they deserve the skills and optimism essential to growth, change, opportunity and fresh rewards.
We are asking you to invest in the Museum’s Annual Fund. Every project we produce offers the joy of making small things work and the prospect of making things work better. Each of the Fund’s initiatives addresses a challenge that is both immediate and promises a return this year and the year after, and
the year after.
Your participation embraces Felix’s long vision.
