Give Local MidlandIf you’ve ever thought about making a donation to the Sanford Historical Society, May 2nd is the perfect day to do so!

We have some exciting news to share with you! On May 2, 2017, the Sanford Historical Society is joining over 50 local nonprofits in raising money to help improve our community. Last year Give Local Midland raised more than $230,000 for local nonprofit endowment funds.

The Museum complex has 9 buildings to maintain plus the collections in each of those buildings. There are cases and file drawers full of photographs and documents that need proper archival materials to keep them safe for future generations to enjoy. It takes more than just our faithful volunteers. Plainly, it takes money…for paint, nails, toner for printers and even brooms to keep the buildings clean. The list is endless.

We need you to help us with three things:

  1. Mark Give Local Midland on your calendar for May 2, 2017, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m., Sanford Historical Society is participating in Give Local Midland (#GiveLocalMidland)! Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to our organization’s endowment fund through the link here:
  2. Please make a donation to support us on Tuesday, May 2nd.
  3. Help us spread the word! Follow us on Facebook: Follow the hashtag #GiveLocalMidland to see the buzz.

We can’t wait to celebrate the difference your generosity will make on May 2nd!
