Annual Fund Donors


Just as magnetic-core memory was the heart of early computers, the Computer History Museum's Core donors are the heart of our organization. Core donors provide the largest source of support for our Annual Fund, which in turn provides flexible resources to support immediate needs including collections, live programming, and educational programs.

This listing recognizes the generosity of Core donors who made gifts to the Annual Fund between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. Giving levels are inspired by the standard binary sizes of computer memory.
