Help us continue operations during this time of need.
Please consider a donation to the Western North Carolina Historical Association during this world-wide crisis. As we approach the end of our fiscal year on April 30, we are reaching out to you to help us continue to pursue our mission of preserving and promoting the history of Western North Carolina even while the Smith-McDowell House Museum is closed to the public. As you can imagine, we rely on revenue from admissions and programs neither of which we are currently able to offer due to COVID-19.
Your donation will help us continue to provide digital content to everyone free of charge. In fact, you can check out our three new virtual exhibits now:
We're also working hard behind-the-scenes on the preservation of our facility and collections as well as designing new programs for youth and adults to start this fall (or maybe even this summer!).
We hope that you will consider a donation - any size helps! - to WNCHA. We are a 501c3 nonprofit, so all donations are tax-deductible. Please know that any gift will be very much appreciated and used well.
And, as an added benefit, if 10 donors give us a total of $1000, gofundme will match it!
