Make a Gift to the Kenosha Public Museums Foundation
Be a part of a vibrant future and the continued educational and cultural enrichment of our community by supporting the Kenosha Public Museums. Your contributions, whether large or small, ensure a strong foundation for all three Kenosha Public Museums.
Call the development manager at 262-653-4407 for more information.
Contribute to the Annual Fund
Donations to the 2016 Annual Fund begin with you and ultimately return to you. Your unrestricted gift supports day-to-day operations. Since the tax levy provides 64% of the operating budget, your gift – large or small – helps raise the balance needed. Your Annual Fund donation keeps all three public Museums open and accessible to make each Museum a place where wonders never cease.
Cash and Other Donations
Cash gifts of any amount directly support exhibit enhancements and new exhibitions. Gifts of securities and stocks are also welcome. Call the development manager at 262-653-4407.
Estate Gifts and Bequests
An estate gift ensures the future of the Kenosha Public Museum for generations to come and leaves a personal legacy which enriches the Kenosha community. Call the development manager at 262-653-4407.
Donate an Artifact
Over 95 percent of the Kenosha Public Museums’ current collections have been donated to the Museums by individual collectors. You may have a treasure that you would like to share. Call the curator of collections at 262-653-4439 for an appointment. Please, no walk-ins.
