MOCA Hits $75 Million Endowment Mark


MOCA has finally hit the  $75 million mark, just $25 million away from their goal to establish a $100 million endowment.

Board co-chairs Maria Bell and David Johnson made the announcement that they’ve been so successful — raising $50 million in the last month alone — thanks to museum trustees and board veterans.

21 donors made pledges, of whom include Wallis Annenberg, Bell and her husband Bill, Johnson and his wife Suzanne, Eli and Edythe Broad, Blake Byrne, Steven and Alexandra Cohen, Cliff and Mandy Einstein, Lenore Greenberg, Bruce Karatz and Lilly Tartikoff Karatz, Daniel S. Loeb and Margaret Munzer Loeb, Eugenio Lopez, Lillian Lovelace, Maurice Marciano, Edward J. and Julie Minskoff, Dallas Price-Van Breda, Fred and Carla Sands, Jeffrey and Catharine Soros, Darren Star and Sutton Stracke.

“The list represents many board members,” said Johnson. “I think by the end we will have essentially all of the board members.”

Added Bell: “I think it’s incredible to see this deep support for MOCA. It’s an extraordinary sign of how much people care about the institution.”
