Campaign for the Legacy of Gerald R. Ford
On November 9, 2012, the Gerald R. Ford Foundation’s board of trustees met with area business and community leaders to share a vision aimed at creating global access to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum’s and Library’s exhibits and documents through the funding of a $15 million dollar capital campaign.
The campaign will fund a 10,500-square-foot student learning center at the museum located in Grand Rapids, Mich., and create interactive exhibits using the latest technologies. Online digital access to a significant number of historical documents in the museum, and library located in Ann Arbor, Mich. are also planned as part of the campaign. The fundraising phase of the campaign is expected to be completed during the spring of 2013.
