Support the Point Lookout Historical Society

We have worked diligently over the last couple of years to sustain and grow PLHS. First, we sent our application for a Charter to the New York State Department of Education and it was granted approval in January 2013. This charter enabled us to secure nonprofit status and thus to apply for grants. It also enables us to provide donors with a tax write off. We recently received a federal project grant from the National Endowment for Humanities, which we plan to implement in the Fall of 2014. We continue to put fundraising at the highest priority after collections care. Most importantly, we are looking for a new space so that we can be open and accessible to the public. Unfortunately, until we secure a new home, we are currently operating on a request-basis only and our collections are not easily accessible to the public. We seek more grants specifically to help with operating costs, such as rent, compensation for services, collection preservation and maintenance, and administrative supplies. We are also planning outreach activities for 2014 to educate and engage folks of all ages about our great history. We continue to plan and develop collections with public input and help. Fundraising for these purposes is crucial, which is why your donation is very much appreciated. Our goals for 2014 are monumental but they are attainable.
