University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

The Sara Yorke Stevenson Legacy Circle acknowledges the generosity of donors who have made planned gifts to the Penn Museum. Whether through a charitable gift annuity, naming the Museum as a beneficiary of your IRA, or making a provision for the Museum in your will, the meaningful decision to make an estate gift helps ensure the Museum’s future. Sara Yorke Stevenson (1847–1921) helped to create the Penn Museum we know today and that we continue to preserve for generations to come. A dynamic archaeologist and the first woman to receive an honorary doctorate from Penn (1894), she was a founder of the Museum and the first curator of the Egyptian and Mediterranean Sections. She later served as the Museum’s Secretary and its fifth (and only female) President from 1904–1905. She organized and analyzed field research in those areas, and helped to build the core of the Museum’s collections. The Sara Yorke Stevenson Legacy Circle of the Penn Museum is named in honor of her extraordinary support of the Museum’s mission. Her legacy continues today thanks to similar visionaries who are committed to sustaining the Museum for many years to come. We would be grateful to welcome you to the Sara Yorke Stevenson Legacy Circle as one of them. All planned gifts are recognized in the Museum’s Annual Report and at an annual event. Planned gifts to the Museum also count as planned gifts to Penn, which recognizes donors as members of its Harrison Society.

In 1887, Penn Provost William Pepper persuaded the University Trustees to construct a building to house artifacts from the Nippur excavations (now located in modern day Iraq), thus beginning the long tradition of the Penn Museum. Loyal members and donors of the Museum who have made gifts for ten or more consecutive years are an integral part of that long tradition, and are honored by induction into The 1887 Society. We recognize with sincere thanks the following individual Museum members and donors for the constancy of their support throughout the last decade and, in many cases, far longer.

What are you passionate about? Do you enjoy seeing school groups in the galleries, vibrant new exhibitions, or hearing about our recent discoveries? The Penn Museum is a place of continual discovery. Each year the Museum hosts an extraordinary range of research and teaching programs, with a wide roster of exhibitions and public and schools programs, in addition to stewarding a collection of over one million objects. We know, and appreciate, that everyone is unique—we even have the labs to prove it! The Development department would like to work with you to discover ways that your contribution can be the most meaningful for students, scholars, visitors and you. Please contact us to learn where a contribution in your area of passion can have the most impact, including Learning Programs, Museum Exhibitions, and Research and Excavations. Support Our Learning Programs The Penn Museum has been committed to inclusivity and engagement since it was founded, offering a wide array of programs and activities for K–12 school groups, individuals, families, and special groups. Believing that the Museum can transform the way our visitors see the past, and the way in which they understand the world and their place in it, our programs offer a first interaction with a resource that we hope may become a lifelong source of information, entertainment, wonder, and belonging. Support Become an Exhibition Partner Explore our rich research heritage and extraordinary collections and unearth diverse perspectives, conveyed through remarkable objects and archival materials, compelling narratives, and engaging interactive experiences in our unique special exhibitions. Support Advance New Discoveries The Penn Museum was established in 1887 with a groundbreaking act of archaeological field research—the first American expedition to ancient Babylonia to excavate the site of Nippur (then within the Ottoman Empire, now in modern-day Iraq). Since then, the Museum has undertaken over 300 research projects throughout the world. You are invited to join us in the thrill and excitement of discovery by helping to underwrite one of more than 30 excavation projects active today! Support
