In addition to the funds provided by membership fees, the Northeast Georgia History Center relies on the generous support of donors and sponsors to sustain operations and fulfill its mission. As an independent, non-profit organization, we do not receive operational funding from government agencies. Our 501-C-3 status means donations are tax-deductible (as allowed by IRS regulations.)
Donors who give $1500 or more in a calendar year to our operational fund are designated Partners. This level of outstanding financial support provides the necessary funds that enable us to more effectively fulfill our mission of preserving and sharing the history of Northeast Georgia.
All Partners receive the following benefits:
Free admission to all of our educational programs
Recognition of your support at all major History Center events
Partner ($1500 Annually)
Patron Partner ($2500 Annually)
Benefactor Partner ($5000 Annually)
The Northeast Georgia History Center offers a variety of opportunities for businesses and individuals to sponsor special events, programs, temporary exhibits, educational programs and exhibit improvements.
GIVING to the History Center offers a distinctive way to honor or memorialize an individual. Both the honoree and the donor are listed in our monthly newsletter.
HISTORIC OBJECTS are an essential part of telling the story of our region.
GIVING TO ENDOWMENT FUNDS provides a unique way to ensure on-going income for our future. Currently, the History Center maintains two funds that provide earnings for operations.
