Certainly donations and gits of money are the main method used to support our programs and are always welcome! After all, we are a publicly supported charity and like any non-profit we have to pay the bills to keep the lights on, the museum free, web sites running, supplies on hand, insurance, etc.
But maybe, you want to do more and direct your gift to support other programs beyond the Museum or basic operating expenses. Sponsor Student trips to France, add a Veteran’s name to the Omaha Beach Statue plaques, name the new Museum wing after your hero, buy archive supplies, a bookshelf, support the re-modeling of an exhibit or gallery. Anything is possible and your wish for your gift and recognition is our command!
Money isn’t the only thing we need! Artifacts and Archive materials that would add to the exhibits and research capabilities are always welcome and still needed. Extra surplus items (non-artifact) or used books, etc. that we could sell in the gift shop area for some extra funds are also helpful.
YOUR TIME! We need volunteers in all areas! Museum Greeters/Docents help open and close the Museum daily, interact with our guest and operate the gift area as well as answer phones and provide basic information to tourists. You don’t have to be a unit veteran or historian, we will Train you! We also will need help with librarian and archive staff as our research capability grows. Our artifact collection is ready for helping hands right now. We get more objects in every month, sometimes faster than we can record them and properly store them.
However you choose to help and support us, please contact us using the info below.
