ACC Celebrates Success of the $10M Elizabeth J. McCormack Endowment Fund Campaign

March 21, 2017

The campaign to raise dedicated endowment funds to support the core operations of the Asian Cultural Council resulted in the establishment of two funds – the Elizabeth J. McCormack Endowment Fund and the ACC Hong Kong Foundation Fund – totaling over $10M.  On Tuesday March 7, ACC held a festive luncheon in NYC to celebrate the successful completion of the campaign. Held on Elizabeth’s 95th birthday, the event honored her decades of leadership at ACC from its very founding, including her twenty-two-year tenure as chairman. ACC was delighted to welcome seventy-five guests including campaign donors, ACC grantees, alumni, and staff, as well as Elizabeth’s beloved family and friends for this very special occasion.
