Sponsor an Object

 
 

We need your help! With over 180,000 objects in our care it takes a lot of time and resources to keep them safe and preserved for the future. With this new program we would like to offer an opportunity to gather support for the collection. Below you will find 10 objects that need some additional time and materials to be in the best conditions. You can help by sponsoring one of these objects to cover the costs of preservation. As a sponsor you will receive a tax deductible receipt, a thank you in our next newsletter, and an update on the care of the sponsored object from our Collections Manager. Sponsorship amounts are based on the cost of preservation materials. If you would like to claim an object for sponsorship call the Museum at 541-967-7122 or email info@armuseum.com
