Thanks to the Academy's Donors

The founding gift to the American Academy in Berlin was given by Anna-Maria and Stephen M. Kellen and the descendants of Hans and Ludmilla Arnhold, who continue to provide majority support of this institution and its endeavors.

We depend on the added generosity of a widening circle of friends on both sides of the Atlantic. It is through their abiding commitment and vision that the American Academy in Berlin has become what the German newsweekly Der Spiegel has called "the world's most important center for American intellectual life outside the United States."
