At the end of each year, we at Lexington Historical Society (and most non-profit organizations) send out what we call our year-end appeal. Usually a letter contained within a card that captures the essence of the year we had, this mailing asks our members and supporters for donations to help us prepare programs, events, and our museums for the new, incoming year.
This year, our year-end appeal was especially important. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we lost about a third of our anticipated revenue in 2020. Therefore, we truly needed the help of our friends to start 2021 off right!
As of today, we have raised $47,000 for our 2020 year-end appeal! We are humbled and appreciative of this wonderful support. While 2020 is over (yay!), we are still accepting donations to help us bring more of the fantastic programs we offer in 2021, whether we have them virtually or in-person. Can you help us reach $50,000?
To give you a sneak peak of what’s to come this year here are just a few of the things we’re working on:
Since we do not receive government funding, it is only through the generosity of our members and friends that we’re able to continue our work. Please consider making a gift to help us get to $50,000 and thrive in 2021. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you in 2021!
