YOUR DONATION HELPS US CONTINUE OUR MISSION
Dear Fellow Members and Friends:
I’m delighted to tell you about a very special gift The Society recently received. A small group of members have very graciously put forth a $25,000 challenge grant toward the operational costs of fulfilling The Society’s mission to stimulate, foster, and promote public interest in the history of The Bronx by continuing our tradition of diverse and dynamic educational programs for Bronxites. This means that every dollar our members donate will be matched, up to $25,000.
The Bronx County Historical Society has been fortunate to have your support through the years. As a result of memberships and donations, our ability to operate as the borough’s history keepers remains strong. However, because The Society is a non-profit institution dependent on public funds, the downward trends in our city and state budgets have drastically affected The Society’s operations. Therefore, we need further financial support that a loyal friend can offer to us in these difficult times.
To take advantage of this very generous opportunity, I’d like to ask you to consider making a tax-deductible contribution to The Bronx County Historical Society so that we may realize the full benefit of this special gift. Your generosity, at this time in particular, will make a big difference and any amount you feel appropriate is a valued and welcomed contribution as we face this difficult year.
For those of you who have a matching donation program with your employer, you can make your gift go even further by taking advantage of the full challenge grant. Regardless of your choice to contribute at this time or at a later date, I wish you and your family happy holidays.
