Annual Giving Campaign
What a year 2020 was ...and one that none of us are likely to remember fondly! Your museum has been challenged with a significant loss of income and obstacles to our normal programming. However the good news is that this has never slowed us down and your wonderful staff, volunteers and Board of Trustees have dug in and created a vast range of more than 60 online and social media programs. We have been able to open the museum again following stringent guidelines and have been hosting visitors from our community and from around the world.
There are many stories I could tell you of how we have met this challenge, but I would like to share just one. With many children and parents stuck at home we have created programs for them that have helped keep families together in a creative and educational way. We have developed take-home art kits with materials and guidelines for parents and although they are expensive to produce we have already distributed over 3000 of these kits and the demand is unabated.
Recently I noticed a small covered shelter by the curb at our education center with several of our staff working outside on a day when it was over a hundred degrees! They had been doing that for multiple days and continue to do so even though instructed to not to for the sake of their own health. Regardless of instructions they have hung in there so that they can distribute the art packets to families. We have an astonishingly dedicated team that cares deeply about your family and the community.
We are now undertaking our annual giving campaign and as I’m sure you recognize our need for your support is greater than ever. Please be as generous as you can and help us continue to provide you and the community with the ever growing demand for our programs. We hope you will consider a gift of $200.00 or above. We are deeply grateful for your support which goes directly to our extraordinary education programs.
