Monetary Donations

 

The Sugar Valley Historical Society relies heavily on members and friends in our efforts to preserve the area’s history.

 

The Sugar Valley Historical Society is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, under Section 501(c)(3) of the I.R.S. Code.  Official registration and financial information about the Society may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State

 

Monetary donations are tax deductible for income tax purposes.  By request, you will be sent a receipt in the mail.

 

Artifact Donations

 

If you are considering donating any items to the museum, please contact us before visiting or sending any material to the Society.

 

We consider several issues when evaluating a donation:

  • Does the item support the Society’s mission?
  • What is the relationship of the item to Sugar Valley?
  • When, how, and by whom was the item used?

 

Unfortunately, we cannot accept everything.  Limited storage space, duplication of objects, and condition of the offered piece affect the decision to accept an object.  The Historical Society staff review each offer.  

 

If the donation is accepted, a "Certificate of Gift" will be given to the Donor which transfers title of the donation to the Society.

 

The Historical Society cannot conduct appraisals for tax purposes, nor can we appraise items as a service to visitors.  It is the responsibility of the donor to have the donation appraised before any item is donated.

 

We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about making a contribution to the Society.  Please contact any officer listed under contacts.

 

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

 

Memorial or honorary gifts are also welcome.  You may wish to donate as a friend, as a business, in honor of a loved, or in memory of a loved one.  

 

Please download the form under Memberships for additional information.
