Dear Friends of NAAM,

As 2008 comes to a close, I want to thank you for your commitment and support of our new Northwest African American Museum. After opening in March, weve had the pleasure of greeting and hosting over 15,000 visitors to the Museum, including more than 2,000 local children. It is clear to all of us that NAAM is a treasure for our community, region, and world.

As we look ahead to 2009 we count on your continuing support since without your generosity there is no Northwest African American Museum. I urge you to become a member of NAAM if you arent already. Membership dues are a key source of funding for us as well as a way for you to stay connected with our Museum.

Im excited to let you know that if you join NAAM now you will have access to a number of benefits including a 10% discount at our newly opened, extraordinary caf - Jemils Creole Caf at NAAM. Come and enjoy his delicious jambalaya, soups, sandwiches, bread pudding and other southern delights.

I also invite you to help us meet our challenge grant of $50,000 from a committed NAAM supporter. Our goal is to match this grant by raising an additional $150,000 for a total amount of $200,000. Please help us meet, exceed, and honor this generous gift by making a donation of $100 or more!

I hope to meet and see many of you in the New Year and please mark your calendars for our members only preview of the timely Tacoma Civil Rights exhibit that will be held on February 4, 2009. Please join us as members and invite your friends to this friend-raising event.

With all best wishes as we look ahead to a very promising future in 2009!
Barbara Earl Thomas
Executive Director
