End of year giving to support our local Milford Museum

At the end of the year many people rush to make that last-minute charitable contribution, so that they have an extra tax deduction to count. If you are among them I have just the charity need for you.

 

Milford Historical MuseumThe Milford Historical Society is fund-raising to replace the storm windows on the Milford Historical Museum. Now, these are n't your ordinary, run down to Loews and picks up some windows kind of storm windows. The museum building is well over a hundred years old and part of the mission of the Milford Historical Society is to keep it looking like it did when built. That means no aluminium storm windows for us. No, sir!

 

Our storm windows are custom made to fit each window. They are made out of wood and each must be custom measured and made, because settling over the years has left most of the windows out of plumb and certainly not square.

 

We have 10 storm windows that need to be made. We have fond a retired carpenter who will make them for us almost free, but he needs the materials to work with. His best estimate is that each window will cost $150. So we need to raise $1,500 to make this happen.

 

The Milford Historical Society is a 501-C3 non-profit organization, so your gift to support this project should give you a tax deduction. You'll feel great about supporting a local cause and you can see you windows when you visit the museum next year. We close for the season this Saturday and will reopen in the spring. By then we hope to have he storm windows all in place.

 

So get out that checkbook and make that last-minute charitable contribution to the Milford Historical Society. You can write down in the memo line that it is for the storm windows project. Send your check to Milford Historical Society, 124 E. Commerce Rd, Milford, MI 48381. We will certainly provide receipts for all donations. You can also visit our eBay page and use the Donate Now button to make a donation to the Milford Historical Society via your credit card or using PayPal. Thank you for your support. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
