From the website of the Mauritshuis:
Founded in 1982, the mission of the American Friends of the Mauritshuis is to create awareness amongst the American public of this important museum and its collection, enable curatorial and conservation fellowships of American graduate students, and to support the work of the Mauritshuis in the broadest sense possible. The Friends act as a conduit for gifts of paintings from American private collectors to the museum as well as securing donations towards its endowment.
