Donations taken through this payment page are currently being applied to our Military Exhibit Hall renovation project. We have hired a professional exhibit design team to aid us in this endeavor. This project requires us to purchase new equipment for display and storage purposes. For your reference: $100 can fund the purchase of a set of display risers, $500 can create a display inside one of our current cases, $1000 can preserve and share the stories of 12 Shelby County veterans, and $3500 can fund the curation of a major exhibit space (Shelby County and Vietnam, Civilians in Wartime, etc.)
In donating to our organization, you will receive no goods or services. You will receive a letter that can be used for claiming your appropriate tax benefits. Donations may be up to 35% deductible, but always refer to the judgement of your tax professional. Donations of $3,500 or more may come with additional donor recognition benefits - including the possibility of exhibit naming rights (pending Board approval).
Online Donations are subject to a small convenience fee. This fee will come out of your donation, resulting in a donation that is slightly smaller than the amount you gave. E.g. a $100 donation becomes a ~$96 donation.
