The Fresno Regional Foundation's donation of $1 million to the Fresno Metropolitan Museum is a big boost for both organizations. The money will help the museum's renovation project and it re-establishes the foundation as an important player in the philanthropy community.
The museum project is now estimated to cost $20 million. Museum officials said the donation is one of the largest from a single group for the upgrade work being done on the building, at Van Ness Avenue and Calaveras Street."
