There are many reasons to become an Allegany Museum Founder:

  • We are the premier collector, repository, and presenter of our region’s rich history.
  • We are the stewards of some 50,000 artifacts & documents, representing 12,000 years of local history.
  • We are a highly respected institution of life-long learning (from young children to retirees).
  • We are an economic driver, a destination for regional and national heritage tourists.
  • Sufficiently-sized endowments generate income- necessary to provide steady funding for Museum operations.
  • As the Museum grows and adds important exhibits, it reduces the amount of tenant revenue available to us.
  • We obtain no government funding for operations. Although the State and Federal governments are generous regarding our capital projects, our operations and programming are privately funded.
  • A gift to the Endowment is a gift of permanence.

If you are interested in these tax credits, please send an email right away to . The process is quick and simple. Please don’t delay.

At levels below $500 that do not qualify for tax credits, just make your check out to
