Matching Challenge!

The Smidt Foundation, led by Eric and Susan Smidt, has given Holocaust Museum LA a $5 million matching grant for its expansion. This gift means that the Foundation will match each donation two-to-one, effectively raising $7.5 million. The Smidt gift emphasizes the importance of welcoming more young visitors, with the goal of keeping both admission and transportation free for school groups.


To commemorate those who perished, honor those who survived, educate about the Holocaust and inspire a more dignified and humane world.
