Donations can be made to general operating expenses, Capital Campaign or to the Adopt an Artifact program.  Consider a membership which includes museum admission and invitations to events.


Capital Campaign:  Striving to raise funds for much needed renovation of the historic building as well as to modernize the permanent exhibits to appeal to a twenty-first century audience while keeping intact the traditional charm of the museum.  To date, over $379,000 has been raised through private donations.  The first goals of the campaign, replacement of the freight elevator and renovations to the public rest rooms, lobby and the old fashioned soda fountain are complete. 


General Operating Fund:  Daily operations and maintenance of the historic Atkinson-Williams Warehouse, which houses the museum, are an ongoing challenge.  Admission fees do not meet rising operational costs.  Please consider a contribution to assist is meeting operational costs.  

Sustaining Contribution:  An ongoing monthly donation assists with daily operational costs. 

Adopt an Artifact:  Funds are restricted to collections care including much needed (and expensive) archival boxes and folders, a light meter, professional conservation services for damaged and/or deteriorating artifacts.
