Dear Members & Friends,
We thank you for your support during the past year. Your museum has been very active with education and preservation programs, tours, research activity and building projects. All of these actions fulfill our mission of preserving and presenting Attleboro’s rich history. Your support has helped to make these activities possible. The Attleboro Area Industrial Museum, Inc. asks for your continued generosity and assistance during this year’s Annual Fund Drive.
In a time of unpredictable funding, it is more important than ever to support an organization that meets community needs and collaborates with other organizations that advocate lifelong learning. Highlights of our past year are described in the enclosed copy of our Clerestory newsletter.
The Annual Fund provides income to help meet the operating needs of the Museum. Your contributions allow us to maintain our historic building and equipment, care for the collection and support programming. We realize there are numerous causes and organizations that compete for your charitable interests and this makes us all the more appreciative of your support. We do not take your generosity for granted. We are responsible for the thoughtful and efficient management of donated resources.
While an outright gift is always appreciated, please consider the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum when arranging your will, opening a charitable gift annuity, arranging a charitable trust or considering life insurance beneficiaries. We have recently started an endowment fund just for this purpose. All of these gifts, whether currently in hand or expected, ensure our continued success as a viable cultural entity in the Attleboro Area.
We feel a keen sense of gratitude not only for your generosity, but also for your expression of confidence that our mission continues to be of the utmost importance. We hope you will respond generously to this year’s Annual Fund Drive.
Please stop by and discover what put the City of Attleboro on the map. Together, we can preserve a central component of Attleboro’s heritage.
Very truly yours,
Scott W. Killough President Board of Directors
