The National Portrait Gallery belongs to all Americans. Federal funding will always be important as it allows the museum to remain open 364 days per year and free of charge to all. But it is only because of private support that we are able to present compelling exhibitions, engage new audiences through education and outreach, and achieve excellence in conservation and digitization.
