Give to the Museum Day is a special day set aside for members and friends to make online donations to the Swedish American Museum. The date of Give to the Museum Day 2018 is June 22.
This year, we are focused on raising money to help fund our Museum expansion. As you probably already know, last year the Museum purchased the building next door. A very exciting opportunity for us to grow and offer our visitors an expanded experience. This means that we will be able to Increase our permanent exhibit and show more of our collection. The shop will move over to the new building in order to make room for a cafe. The expansion will also provide the Museum with necessary conference and learning space. Our hope is to have some of the work in place before the end of this year and the rest to come.
Our goal on June 22 is to raise $5,000 to go towards the renovation and construction costs involved in connecting the two buildings. Many thanks for your generosity!
