San Juan Historical Museum Joins Virtual Fair Fundraiser
Since 2017, the Historical Museum has added nearly 3,000 historical images to our photographic collection, through gifts, acquisitions and found treasures. The number of digitally scanned, researched and catalogued images illustrating the history of San Juan Island, now tallies 5,500. As a result, we have outgrown our existing capacity to safely and securely store the originals.
For this year’s virtual San Juan County Fair, the Historical Museum is joining the San Juan Island Community Foundation’s matching grant program to raise funds towards the purchase of a disaster proof photographic filing cabinet. We need your assistance in helping us reach our fundraising goal of $4,500, which will enable us to procure needed storage capacity.
During the virtual Fair, the Community Foundation will match contributions up to $1,000. Additional bonus grants totaling $2,500 can be earned during the Fair through featured daily games. Details are provided each day of the fair via the Foundation’s Facebook page.
Donations will be accepted only during the four days of the Fair, August 12-15. To donate to our cause, follow this link:
