The Official Hip Hop Hall of Fame initiates its #21DaysOfGiving VIP & Fan Memberships and End of year Donation fundraising campaign, in celebration of the newly designed Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum & Hotel Entertainment Complex that will be a major cultural addition to the Manhattan skyline in New York City, and the Educational outreach programming and events being developed and scheduled for 2017.

The Founding Fans Membership & Donor Campaign salutes the first 25,000 VIP Sign Up Members who join and support the hip hop museum with a $35 donation will receive a bonus gift of being ‘enshrined with hip hop greats’ in a real life ‘Fan Wall of Fame Exhibit’ inside the HHHOF Museum. They will have their picture, and a 20 second video clip of ‘Why they love hip hop or the Hall of Fame’ when the facility opens its doors. A rendering of the fan wall of fame exhibit is on display at the official HHHOF website. Those fans and supporters will also receive a VIP 10% discount on all official Merchandise, Events, and Products coming in 2017 for their annual membership.

The HHHOF is calling to action all of its fans, membership base, partners, and supporters to get the word out to make a donation or pledge of any amount to the Hip Hop Hall of Fame during our #21DaysOfGiving year-end campaign.

“The time has finally come, where hip hop music and culture history will have a permanent home, to build a foundation for history, education, knowledge, innovation, and creativity for future generations to understand its origins, the elements, and the struggle for socio-economic empowerment opportunities for young people and families in America, and around the World,” states JT Thompson, Founder of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum, and Creator of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show that first broadcast on BET Cable Networks in the early 1990s.

The HHHOF Museum is a Chartered non-profit 501(c)3 Museum and Educational Institution whose mission is to Preserve, Archive, Exhibit, Educate, and Showcase Hip Hop Music & Culture from around the world. In keeping with our global mission the funds raised will assist in the continued museum concept development, and site acquisition. It will also contribute to the architectural design, museum exhibit designs, collection management, community outreach & youth educational programming, the Hip Hop Arts & Media Academy Program, a digital hip hop history museum, annual events, and the museum’s general operations and staffing for long-term sustainability. The private support, contributions, and gifts we receive invest in attracting and retaining the best minds and partners to ensure the HHHOF Museum has the power to open to the general public worldwide with the permanence to endure.

The HHHOF Museum has also initialized its early campaign by reaching out to potential partners, sponsors, major legacy contributors, and challenge grants that shall continue through 2017-18.

“The level of excellence and historical significance that will be expressed in the Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum & Hotel Entertainment Complex site can be achieved only with a significant infusion of philanthropic capital, fan and supporter based memberships, entertainment industry and executive support, artists and celebrity pledges and proclamations, and with natural sponsorships and naming rights opportunities,” Thompson comments.
