The Stuhr Museum Foundation has received more than $1 million over the past 18 months.

Foundation Executive Director Kevin Hendrix calls the amount “once-in-a-generation” giving.

The foundation has received nearly $1.1 million since July 2014. Hendrix says that amount hasn’t been matched since before 2000.

Hendrix says the money came from gifts from the estates of Fran Cronin, Marval Hornady and Gloria Wolbach.        

Hendrix says the money isn’t going toward one big project. In fact, the money won’t be immediately spent, but instead be added to the museum’s endowment to help provide for its future.
