President’s Circle

The President’s Circle is an intimate community of stakeholders and key supporters who have access to special receptions, behind-the-scenes programs with Museum curators and educators, private tours, and other exclusive opportunities.

Join the President’s Circle today and help the Tenement Museum reach more people with our message of how immigrants built — and continue to build — America and help reshape the national narrative about immigration.
