Galloway Family Annual Support Campaign Match 2018

Galloway Family Annual Support Campaign Match 2018

The Galloway Family Has Generously Offered To Make A Matching Gift in 2018

We have some very exciting news about the Fond du Lac County Historical Society. We have received a $50,000 matching grant for all donations made by the end of this year (2018). Members of the Galloway family continue to be strong supporters, and this year they have generously offered to match all donations and pledges of financial support to the Society made by December 31, 2018, dollar for dollar up to $50,000. So every dollar you contribute could become $2. The match will apply to any money received this year and to any pledges made this year that are paid in 2019.

With the help of a consultant hired by the Galloway family, the Board of Directors has completed a  strategic plan and created a new Vision, Mission, and Values for the Society. We know you treasure these historic buildings, and our community support stands strong. 

Your generosity will make our Vision become a reality and will provide much needed operating funds for the Historic Society. Together, we can have the visible, vibrant and well maintained local historical society that we all envision.

Gifts at the following levels will be recognized in our Welcome Center at the Village throughout 2019:

Galloway Level – $10,000 and above

Gen. Edward S. Bragg Level – $5,000 – $9,999

Kate Hamilton Pier Level – $2,500 – $4,999

Trailblazer Level – $1,000 – $2,499

Pioneer Level – $500 – $999

Historian Level – $250 – $499

The Society is also working with preservation architects and other professionals to formulate plans for repair and restoration of the Galloway House and Village buildings, for a new Welcome Center and for upgrading the Blakely Museum. So, stay tuned for more exciting developments in 2019!

Today we respectfully ask for your gift. Join us as we make the Galloway House and Village the place that everyone in Fond du Lac will be proud of. Remember that your gift will be matched by the Galloway family gift. Thank you for your consideration and your steadfast support of the Galloway House and Village!
