We welcome monetary donations and endowments
We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Monetary donations are needed to keep the museum running, to archive our collections and to maintain and preserve items on display.
We do Memory Lane Receptions that require funding.
We operate on a shoestring budget plus the gracious hours of service donated by local volunteers.
Individuals and businesses can support the Museum of Local History programs, designate specific activities or exhibits and honor a friend or loved one by making a tax-deductible contribution. You many provide an unrestricted use where the Museum’s need is greatest, or support an area of the Museum in which you have a special interest.
Add to your membership a tax-deductible gift to support us.
Honor an achievement, pay tribute to or memorialize someone special.

You are invited to contribute to the Regena Dennie Memorial Fund at the Museum of Local History, which focuses on Washington Township History. Regena was a charter member of the Museum of Local History Guild. She led the docent program for many years and served on the Board of Directors. The money will be used to help process, digitize and index significant collections at the museum and make them more readily available to students and researchers.
