The money comes from the late steel executive William S. Dietrich II, who previously made gifts of $265 million to Carnegie Mellon University and $125 million to the University of Pittsburgh.

The Carnegie Museums gift will support the President's Strategic Initiative Fund in all areas of museum operations, including exhibitions. Dietrich served as a trustee of the museums from 1998 to 2004 and served on the Carnegie Museum of Art Board from 2004 to 2011.
