You Can Help Us
Make A Tax Deductible Donation
We appreciate donations of any size. All donations are acknowledged every year in our annual report. You can make your donation by cash, check, credit card or Paypal.
We Need Your Help
You can also be part of our online giving program by visiting https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/fRWl6
and making a donation in support of our programs.
We need your help spreading the word to meet our goal. On the first of March 2013, the Museum launched its first online social media fundraiser. The goal of this special fundraiser is to offset the costs associated with building maintenance and the Museum’s new educational programs.
The clock is ticking and we hope you will help us exceed our target goal of $10,000 by April 30, 2013. As you know, the Museum depends on the generous donations of all of our supporters in order to meet the expenses associated with operations, exhibitions, conservation, building maintenance, and educational programs. You can help us by making a donation of any size to this campaign or by simply sharing our fundraiser with your family, friends, co-workers, or guild members. You never know who might be willing to contribute to our cause.
Even if you are not a quilter, the social and cultural aspects of quilting have shaped the lives of people around the world. Thank you for your continued support. We firmly believe that every donation helps.
