A donation to the Amelia Island Museum of History is an investment in our community.
Amelia Island is a magical place, treasured by all who come here for its alluring beauty and unparalleled natural setting. But in addition to that, it has a history that is also unparalleled by anything else in North America. It is the Stated Mission of the Amelia Island Museum of History to “Preserve, protect and promote the unique history of Amelia Island and its surrounding areas for a diverse community of residents, researchers and visitors.”
GENERAL FUND SUPPORT
As we all know, membership dues and admission fees cover only a portion of the yearly budget of a Museum like ours. In addition, funds from corporate donors and public (Federal and State) sources have dropped significantly in the last ten years. Despite that, The Amelia Island Museum of History is dedicated to continuing to tell the amazing story of life on our little island over the last 4000 years.
Please consider donating to our General Fund to help us cover operating expenses that are beyond what is covered by regular income. This Fund is available year-round to accept donations that help to keep us open. Thank you for considering a donation!
ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN
Once a year we call primarily on membership in the Annual Giving Campaign to help the Museum cover operating expenses so that the Museum can stay in the black. That means we can continue to offer the popular programs you and so many others have grown accustomed to, such as the Third on Third lectures, Brown Bag lunches and Children’s Summer and Mini-camp.
PLANNED GIVING INFORMATION
Donors who remember the Museum in their wills provide numerous benefits to the Amelia Island Museum of History, including helping to build and maintain its historical library collection and providing indispensible support for exhibits, scholarly publications, conservation efforts, and a range of educational activities.
You may arrange for the Museum to receive:
- A specific dollar amount
- Specified assets, such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property
