The Explorers Club Headquarters boasts 114 stained glass windows. They embody a stunning range of brilliantly colored panes, representing a number of heraldic shields, portraits and pastoral and classical scenes. These windows are in dire need of repair.
In some cases the lead has expanded and split and many show cracks and buckling. Donations of $25,000 will ensure the complete renovation of a window, including the steel framing. Donations of $5000 and above will entitle the donor to a designated name on a brass plaque below the “adopted” window. Windows have been categorized by level of work needed based on the extinction tables, from low risk to near extinct.
