Support The OI


The Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture appreciates the generosity and dedication of its donors to its mission of supporting the community of early American scholars and their work to give voice to the past since the OI’s 1943 founding. Annual support from Omohundro Institute Associates and gifts directed to fund specific projects and programs help the OI continue its tradition of supporting excellence in early American scholarship and exploring new initiatives to enhance this mission.
