Talmage Historical Society

Specific Need

People often wonder, “what’s going to happen to the museum when you’re gone, Verl?”  The answer to that is short and involves our endowment fund at the Community Foundation.  The generous donation of Ralph Snyder provides for minimum annual operating costs.  With additional contributions and the match this year, we will be able to cover nearly all of our monthly expenses.  We’ve written grants to cover projects such as the newly installed electronic sign and replacing all bulbs with LED's.  Again this year, there’s an opportunity to help us grow that fund with a match from the Community Foundation of Dickinson County. 

On March 20, ONE DAY ONLY, the Foundation will match all contributions to our museum.  Donate Dickinson County Day is to help nonprofit organizations and agencies grow their endowed funds, and therefore, become sustainable. The Community Foundation will DOUBLE any contribution up to $5000 to Talmage Historical Society and Museum. Donate Day is a fantastic way for participating nonprofits to grow their endowed funds exponentially. 

The purpose of an endowed fund is to send a signal to the community and donors that the organization is thinking long-term and is building assets for its own future sustainability, and the Community Foundation wants to help in this effort. So, on March 20th, your DONATIONS WILL DOUBLE to make a Difference.” 

The Community Foundation is an organization that looks at the long view.  It tries to determine what our county needs to be more vibrant, more educated, and a more wonderful place to live! One way to do this is through a match day program like Donate Dickinson County Day. So be prepared to GIVE ON MARCH 20th through the Community Foundation of Dickinson County. YOU DONATE, WE DOUBLE, AND AMAZING THINGS HAPPEN. 

The methods for donating include in person at the Community Foundation, 418 NW Third Street, Abilene on March 20th or online at www.donatedickinson.com and click on Talmage Historical Society or send Verl a check and he will add it to our funds that day.  We will have a booth at the Foundation office that day to visit with walk in donors.  To learn more, call Verl, 785-200-0214, or go to the Foundation website at www.communityfoundation.us, or call 785.263.1863.  The Community Foundation of Dickinson County…For good For ever! 

Remember, your contribution dollars are matched ONLY on Friday, March 20th.
