How Your Gift Helps

As the Museum dreams about the future of glass, we look to our friends to bring those dreams to life.

What do you care about most at The Corning Museum of Glass?  Does your interest lie in the world’s most comprehensive collection of historical and contemporary glass, in furthering the scholarly research of glass at the Rakow, in fostering a growing community of glass artists at The Studio, or in expanding the scientific and creative uses of glass through technology and innovation?  Truly, there are hundreds of ways to make an impact across the Museum.   

The decades since our founding in 1951 are marked by a steady evolution into the greatest and most comprehensive glass museum in the world.  Legacy gifts, especially those marked for our Endowment, helps us sustain this path of excellence.  Our Endowment supports initiatives not just for one year, or even one generation, but in perpetuity.  Ensuring other visitors, scholars and artists can enjoy all the Museum has to offer for generations to come.

Please contact Lindsay Hahnes, Manager of Individual and Planned Giving, at or 607.438.5128 to discuss your dreams for the future of the Museum.
