Engrave your support for human rights and social justice.
The Clinton Presidential Center has launched a paver campaign in support of the Anne Frank Educational Fund. In addition to maintaining the Anne Frank Tree Installation, this fund sustains programming for students, educators, and the public that promotes the teaching of respect, importance of dialogue, and need for civic engagement. Past programs have included "Conversations with Anne" and "Social Justice and the Legacy of Anne Frank."
In 2009, the Clinton Center, in partnership with the Sisterhood of Congregation B’nai Israel, was one of 11 entities in the United States to be awarded a young chestnut tree by the Anne Frank Center’s “Sapling Project.” The sapling was taken from the white horse chestnut tree that stood outside Anne Frank’s Secret Annex when she and her family were in hiding from the Nazis during World War II. The young writer cherished and wrote about the tree frequently in her famous diary.
Dedicated by President Clinton at a ceremony in 2015, the Anne Frank Tree Installation consists of five framed, etched glass panels – arranged to evoke the feeling of being inside a room – shares not only Anne Frank’s story, but conveys the complex history of human rights in Arkansas. The installation has been made possible thanks to the support of the Ben J. Altheimer Charitable Foundation, TRG Foundation, and other generous partners.
