Gift from Rita Hauser to Upgrade the RAND Archives

Rita Hauser, an international lawyer, philanthropist, and committed RAND supporter, has made a $1 million gift to RAND. The gift will support the RAND Archives, which collects, preserves, and provides access to materials that document the origins, development, operations, and impact of RAND and its research from 1948 to the present.

In recognition of the gift, the Archives will be renamed the Hauser RAND Archives. The gift will help RAND modernize the Archives facility, including constructing a new storage vault for preservation, a digital preservation studio, a processing room, and an archival research room.

“RAND is such an important institution—one that truly embraces quality and objectivity as core values,” said Rita Hauser, president of the Hauser Foundation and former member of the RAND Board of Trustees. “I'm honored to help preserve the organization's intellectual history and keep these records accessible for the benefit of RAND, the community, and future generations.”
