Special thanks to our funders & contributors

We’d like to offer a special thank you to John and Ann Doerr for their extraordinary generosity and vision.

We are very grateful for major support from:
The Ampersand Foundation
The College Board
Google Cultural Institute
Khan Academy
Samuel H. Kress Foundation
The Macaulay Family Foundation
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
National Endowment for the Humanities
Terra Foundation for American Art
Walton Family Foundation

and to the many individual donors who make Smarthistory possible.

We also want to acknowledge the extraordinary generosity and dedication of our academic contributors. Without their commitment, Smarthistory would not be possible.

We would also like to thank Dr. Joseph Ugoretz for his technology expertise—from setting up hosting, to fixing bugs, to pushing WordPress to its limits to make Smarthistory’s content shine. In fact, Smarthistory started when Joe purchased a $30 ipod microphone so that we could record in museums. (If you’re interested in the technology behind this site, take a look at Joe’s blog post here.) Thanks also to Susan Koski Zucker for her design expertise and for dropping everything more times than we can count to help with the endless details required to make this site’s design as strong as possible.
