Why donate to the Schuylkill Historical Fire Museum?
The straightforward answer is, “Because the Museum can’t exist without the generosity of people like you!”
There are many costs related to maintaining any museum, including ours. Temperature and humidity must be kept within ranges suitable for maintaining artifacts and archives, all year long. Then there are electricity, heat, telephone, water and sewage bills to pay. There is also the various costs for fuel, maintenance, and upkeep on the apparatus.
While the Museum enjoys support from local government and business, donations from individuals are crucial in making ends meet.
Furthermore, contributions from individuals demonstrate to our funding agencies that our community values the Museum and is doing its part to support it.
