What is the difference between purchasing a membership to the museum and donating to the Annual Appeal?
Membership dues provide you with a variety of member benefits whereas gifts to the Annual Fund are donations that do not confer any membership benefits. They are unrestricted contributions that enable the Museum to close the gap between income and yearly operating expenses. Annual expenditures include staff salaries and benefits, office and museum equipment, building(s) maintenance, programs, exhibits, publications, utility and insurance costs.
The Annual Fund starts each year in November and runs until the following October. Though solicitations for the Annual Fund are sent in early November, donations can be made anytime throughout the year to this fund.
