RTPI Rising: A Bold, New Strategic Vision

Happy holidays! Our gift to you, RTPI’s friends and generous supporters, is a bold, new vision for expanding the reach, the relevance and the resilience of RTPI for years to come.

Already, our new strategic plan – RTPI Rising – is exceeding expectations.

Museum attendance at RTPI more than doubled this year – a feat all the more remarkable since we’ve only been reopened to the public since May 29, 2021 following the six-month recovery from an electrical fire.

What this tells us is that our exhibitions of Art that Matters to the Planet really do matter to people. Youth and their families love the new art we commissioned: the mural in our Art & Nature Lab and the six new sculptures along our Art & Nature Trail. An expanded slate of programs for people of all ages fill up quickly. Museum store sales are booming.

Gratefully, donations are on the rise, as well. Last year, you helped us raise $100,000 during our year end campaign. We are halfway to the current year end goal. Please join us in making this year as successful as last year.

Thank you, as always, for your generous support of RTPI. On behalf of our entire board and staff, happy holidays to you and yours.

P.S. If ever there was a time to invest in RTPI, that time is now. Certain tax benefits in 2021 make it even easier to make a charitable impact with your giving at year end. Please consider supporting RTPI before December 31 securely online at rtpi.org/giving.
