The Museum's Endowment Foundation is a reliable part of it's income. This source of income plays a vital roll and assists in maintaining the key operating needs of the Museum and the building.
The Endowment contributes to us every year on a quarterly basis. The amount of the disbursement is related to the financial position and end of year dividends reported from the previous year. The yield of their efforts has steadily increased year-over-year and is a direct result of the combined knowledge each board member has in their field of busines and finance. Their diligence to secure and invest these funds will make sure the Museum has the financial security to operate well into the future.
