Your generous contributions support our Mission. It is through the efforts of people who love Lorain and its rich tradition and history that the Lorain Historical Society has been set on a path to success. We are able to boast of two beautiful properties: the Moore House Museum and the Carnegie Center. While we have made significant investments of time and money in both of these buildings, we want to make sure that our efforts continue well into the future.
You can help in two ways:
The Endowment Fund:
Your gift to the Endowment Fund will insure our sustainability well into the future. Every dollar given toward the Endowment Fund before December 31, 2018 will be matched 2:1 by an Anonymous Donor, up to $50,000. This year we have raised $14,000 in new money for our Endowment. The interest generated from our Endowment Investment is used each year to provide programs and exhibits for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
Power of One Campaign:
Your gift to the Power of One Campaign (the Annual Appeal) will ensure that the story of Lorain’s history—its people and the events that shaped them—will be passed on for generations to come. Each year donations given to the Power of One Campaign provide the funding necessary for the daily operation of our organization, including utilities, digital media, maintenance, trash pick-up, postage, office supplies, and much, much more.
