Quilt museum reaches goal of $65,000

Staff report

The National Quilt Museum achieved its year-end matching campaign goal of $65,000. The campaign started on Dec. 1 and went through Jan. 31.

Half of the funds came from Mark Dunn of Moda Fabrics, who matched every donation dollar-for-dollar.

"I am overjoyed with the success of the campaign," National Quite Museum CEO Frank Bennett said. "The National Quilt Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that relies heavily on the generosity of individuals passionate about the museum."

Bennett said the money will go toward a number of different programs and initiatives at the museum.

In 2016, over 3,500 youth participated in museum activities, many of whom have limited access to art programs.

"I need to give a very special thank you to every single person that gave to this year's campaign, and especially to Mark Dunn for matching every dollar donated," Bennett said.
