Annual Fund

Your contribution to the Annual Fund helps us continue our mission of creating a better future through historical understanding by sharing our collection in the Information Commons' new display cases. Your unrestricted support helps cover these costs:

  • $100 Time to assess and research a collection's suitability for public display
  • $250 Funds to digitize the display items, making them available for the public 
  • $500 Funds for full conservation of display items
  • $1,000 The cost of intitial research to installation of an entire collection 

Your support also contributes to all Society operations including storage, conservation, library services, and educational programs--including online lesson plans and exhibitions. The Annual Fund also helps to support our publications: Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography (PMHB) and Legacies Magazine. 


Contributions in any amount are welcome.
