The Smithsonian is our nation’s platform for telling the American Story. For 20 years, the Smithsonian Latino Center has ensured that the Latino Story is present within that American Story.

Your support of the Smithsonian Latino Center fuels the expansion of Latino representation through exhibitions, public programs, educational outreach, research, and professional development opportunities. Check out our 2015 Annual Report to see the numerous ways your contributions have turned our goals into reality!

Publicly launched October 2014, the $1.5 billion Smithsonian Campaign is the largest in history for a cultural institution and aims to tell America's Story, spark discovery, inspire lifelong learning and use technologies to reach people everywhere. Visit our Smithsonian Campaign page for more details.

"Knowing your cultural narrative is essential to understanding yourself. The history of Latinos in the U.S. is a great American history, and you can't truly understand our nation without it. The arts help us understand our past, put the present in context and anticipate the future. That's why the Smithsonian Latino Center is so important."
