With your help, we can offer free admission to children in 2019.
On November 27, The Fenton History Center is starting its holiday fundraising campaign by participating in the global #GivingTuesday movement to support children and families in our community and beyond.
#GivingTuesday, held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
We will use the proceeds from #GivingTuesday in a way that benefits everyone in our community! At the Fenton, we are committed to making the museum as accessible as possible to anyone with an interest in our wonderful local history. With that goal in mind, if we can raise just $1,000 for this campaign, the Fenton will continue to offer free museum admission to all children in 2019!
What does this mean? Any child who visits the museum with a paying adult will get in free. Your donation means that ALL children can discover, explore, and enjoy our history. This initiative, which we first began offering last year, has resulted in a significant increase in visitation by local and tourist families. We feel so privileged to be able to expand our ability to serve this community and all of its fantastic visitors! Thank you!
