Cor•ner•stone [kawr-ner-stohn], n.

  1. A stone representing the nominal starting place in the construction of a monumental building, usually carved with the date and laid with appropriate ceremonies.
  2. Something that is essential, indispensable, or basic.
  3. The chief foundation on which something is constructed or developed.

Donors in support of the Historic Capitol Museum are the Cornerstones of the Foundation’s mission: they are essential, indispensable, and represent the foundation of our development as an organization.

The Historic Capitol Cornerstone Society is the Museum’s Cumulative Giving Program, and is named for the architectural significance of the Historic Capitol building. The named giving levels begin with the uppermost architectural feature of the building, the cupola, representing the highest giving level, with subsequent named features descending to the foundation, or cornerstone, of the Historic 1902 Capitol building.

The Cumulative Giving levels for Donor Recognition are: $5,000, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, and $500,000 and above. This Cumulative Giving Program is open to all donors and includes individuals, families, corporations, foundations, and all other funding partners. The concept of cumulative giving recognizes the sustained private support of our special donors and champions of the Historic Capitol Museum.

The Cumulative Giving Wall will be located in the First Floor Rotunda along the south wall adjacent to the Grand Staircase and will incorporate architectural features of the building in its design. This is a prominent location within the historic interior spaces of the building and will give our donors the heightened level of visibility by more than 75,000 visitors annually to the Historic Capitol that is deserving of their support.
