Donations to the Silver River Museum help us to fulfil our mission and maintain a modest operating budget. Monetary contributions can be made directly to the museum, or accepted on our behalf by the Public Education Foundation of Marion County which is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We apply 100% of donated funds to directly support educational programs for local students and the public.
If you have unique historical objects you think may fit with our collections, we would be interested in learning more. Donors who wish to donate objects can obtain a third party professional appraisal and may be eligible for a charitable deduction on their taxes.
Due to limited space, donations of large collections of objects are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and in accordance with the criteria in the Collections policies. If you are interested in helping to support the Silver River Museum, please contact us today so we can explore options.
