Redlanders give back, again! The MOR is thrilled to announce a second major gift in as many weeks. A personal gift from Laura and Jack Dangermond in the amount of $3 million joins other amazing gifts from the Jack H. Brown Family Foundation, Clara Clem, and Carol and Tim Rochford. These significant gifts coupled with the generosity of hundreds of Redlands’ residents bring the museum close to reality.
The Dangermond gift brings our fundraising total to $12 million, essentially ensuring the beginning of construction of Redlands’s newest jewel.
“We’re very proud to join the more than 800 other contributors to the Museum of Redlands said Jack Dangermond. Our gift reflects the long tradition of giving by Redlands citizens that has made our town such a very special place. We hope our gift inspires others to give what they can to further our community’s unique quality”.
The Museum will transform and expand the former Redlands Daily Facts building on Brookside Avenue and Center Street, to a more than 14,000 square foot facility including exhibition space, an events pavilion and a garden that promises to be ideal for public and private events.
The Los Angeles-based architects Johnson Favaro designed the Museum to respond the current needs of the Redlands community, while acknowledging its unique history.
“It has been so heartening to see how many people in our community have come forward to create MOR together,” remarked Redlands Historical Museum Association president Steve Stockton. “It’s clear that this train is definitely leaving the station, and everyone who cares about Redlands can get on board.”
Dangermond continued, “Redlands is such an amazing and vibrant town with so much to offer. It has a unique community spirt that continues to enrich all of us. The Museum will build on this and take Redlands to the next level.”
