Now 55% of Goal!
To date the latest Foundation campaign to benefit the Mining and Ranching Building (aka the Pole Barn) has brought in $14,214.25 which includes $1,250 raised from the Foundation’s lecture series.
We plan to kickstart our 2022 efforts with more “What the Heck is That?” and “Bet you didn’t Know” fundraising campaign emails and hope to reach our $25,000 goal by July – 1 year after we began.
The generosity of our members, lecture goers, and other supporters has been remarkable and greatly appreciated! THANK YOU! If you haven’t been to the Mining & Ranching building lately, I encourage you to go and see the outstanding progress that has been made!
In 2021 The Angels Camp Museum Foundation applied for a $10K google ad grant and we are happy to report that this grant has been awarded! The Google Ad Grants program supports registered nonprofit organizations, including many that share Google's philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy, and the arts. Google Ad Grants is an in-kind advertising program that awards free online advertising to nonprofits. The Foundation is working with a local Google Advertising professional and will be focusing on raising awareness of the museum, promoting exhibits, increasing admissions, and raising funds.
