Can you help preserve our history for future generations?
Too often, the results of our lifetime of work leave the area when we leave, or pass on. Both our wealth and our personal contribution to the area’s history leave the region, never to return.
Your donations and bequests to Allegany Museum can preserve the history that you and your family helped to make.
How can you pass on your legacy to the community?
- Contact the Allegany Museum at 301-777-7200 regarding those heritage items in your basements and attics that you’ve “been meaning to do something with.” Allegany Museum can help preserve them for future generations to learn from. Right now, the Museum is looking for photos and artifacts of working life in the County, particularly of labor unions, the Celanese plant, railway workers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and of WPA and CCC projects and workers.
- Create a family legacy by giving to the Allegany Museum Endowment, which transforms your one moment of giving into generations of educational opportunities.
- Update your will, retirement plans and life insurance policies with your charitable intentions.
- The satisfaction of giving is immediate; and when given to this endowment, the impact can be everlasting.
Your family is already part of your community’s history. Make it part of your community’s future.
