Dear Friends of the Glass House,
We hope this finds you and your loved ones well, and safe. It’s amazing how much has changed since our last update.
Since our opening to the public in 2007, the Glass House has welcomed visitors from near and far. Guests from all generations have made the journey to one of the most important buildings in the history of modern architecture. It is up to us to ensure that this American treasure, bequeathed to the National Trust for Historic Preservation by Philip Johnson, is maintained for generations to come.
Due to COVID-19, months of tours have been canceled. Our annual Summer Party fundraiser has been postponed. Our ability to maintain and preserve the Glass House depends on you. We know these are uncertain times and realize how many requests you are getting, but we are relying on you, those who are passionate about architecture, design, art and landscape, to help. Now is the time that we greatly need your support.
The Robert W. Wilson Charitable Trust has offered us a challenge grant. Contributions made during this critical moment will be matched $1 for every $2 donated. These funds will be unrestricted and are enormously helpful in addressing our financial hardship.
We are looking to you, our steadfast supporters, as we ask for help. We would be so very grateful if you could please make a contribution today. Now more than ever the Glass House needs you!
