Veterans Project Kickoff Brunch

2017 Annual Appeal

We hope you will consider continuing your support for all that ACHS does in educating the community and providing a resource for answers to research questions. Most especially, we hope you will help us in preserving veterans’ voices through our newest project. Your donation will cover staff time to manage the project and conduct oral histories, as well as reproduction costs, digitizing needs, online hosting costs, and grant writing time to seek further funding. Our goal is to raise $15,000 and we are asking for your help to accomplish this:

  • A donation of $75 will pay for one month of web hosting for an online gallery
  • A donation of $100 provides funds to either record or transcribe one veteran story
  • A donation of $250 will pay to create one veteran profile vignette in the exhibit gallery

Read the full appeal letter here.

Your year-end, tax-deductible donation will dramatically improve how we share Anoka County’s rich history with the public. No donation is too small and helps ensure the continued success of ACHS. From all of us at ACHS, we wish you and your family the happiest of holidays!
