Below is a snippet of what a donation from you today can help us achieve:
Field trips for elementary schoolchildren. Did you know that most schoolchildren only get one field trip a year? Those in Title I schools often get none at all. Your donation of $250 pays for one school bus for two classes.
Mobile Museum. Schools are charged just $85 for a Mobile Museum visit, but the true cost of one visit is $200. Your gift makes up the difference.
Collections Conservation. Our collections require careful handling and lots of TLC. Environmental controls, Museum quality storage materials and specialized treatments are costly (but worth it). Your gift of $100 help keep one artifact in tip-top condition.
Family Days. We offer FREE monthly Family Days because, even at just $6 for adults and $4 for children, a day at the museum can be expensive for a family of four. A gift of $1,000 underwrites admission for 50 families.
Double your cultural support at no cost! Match your gift to the Museum with a gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust and your entire Trust gift becomes a tax credit on your Oregon tax return, up to $500 for individuals and $1,000 for couples filing jointly. To make your matching gift, or for more information, go to www.culturaltrust.org/give.
