Americana Foundation Founders

Portrait of Ginger Meyer Portrait of Adolph Meyer

The Americana Foundation was established by Adolph H. Meyer and Ginger Meyer to support, through philanthropy, their varied personal interests. Their success in industry and their interest in agriculture and the protection of urban open space, combined with their deep knowledge of and appreciation for authentic American art, have been the guiding focus for the programs of the foundation. 

This dedication to education and agriculture includes preservation of their 160-acre historic farmstead in southeast Michigan, Tollgate Farm, which provides unique hands-on learning on a working farm in an urban setting.
