EPNNES Thanksgiving Donations to Numismatic Organizations
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and to honor the field that was a life-long source of joy and discovery for Eric P. Newman, the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES) is making
a number of one-time gifts to organizations dedicated to the study and promotion of numismatics.
EPNNES desires to acknowledge the work of various national, regional, and specialty groups and to further encourage the pursuit of scholarship and collaboration. Newman was active in many
numismatic societies throughout his long collecting career and understood the value of working with fellow collectors and researchers in order to advance the science of numismatics.
EPNNES particularly wishes to recognize groups that have freely shared information with the wider numismatic community. Organizations receiving gifts will be contacted directly by EPNNES in the
This is great news for the receiving organizations. I spoke briefly with Newman Numismatic Portal Project Coordinator Len Augsburger; NNP is also funded by EPNNES. Checks are
starting to go out to over 40 organizations and will total over $250,000 in all. What a generous gift to the numismatic community! These funds will be a big help to many deserving groups.
