2017 Annual Fund – Saving this Landmark…
2017 has been a very busy, fun and eventful year for your Auburn Cord Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum! Our monthly Curatorial Spotlight and If Car’s Could Talk have proven to be informative and popular. This year we added a second Driving Experience and each were a huge success. Check out automobilemuseum.org and view our current Virtual Exhibit titled Paul Reuter-Lorenzen – The Art of Automobile Design. We recently opened a new exhibit Boattails – Supercars of the Golden Age. To all of this we say Thank You to our generous members and community as we strive to preserve and continually improve!
Now we need to focus on our daily program expenses. As with all museums, earned revenues do not bring in enough to meet even a careful budget. Hence, the museum must ask for donations and grants each year to ensure that school and public lectures take place, collections and buildings are maintained, and the museum’s 45,000 annual visitors get the best possible experiences. A gift to the 2017 Annual Fund is one way that you can help provide the stability and the means to support the museum’s day to day operations, which in turn supports all of its educational programing. We need $21,000 more to reach our 2017 goal of $55,000! Your tax-deductible gift, in any amount, will help us meet this crucial portion of our budget.
Consider making a gift for the holidays in memory or honor of someone special! A gift of $100 will be recognized in our annual report and in the exquisite Company Showroom. Your gift can also honor or memorialize a special person for the holidays. It is a wonderful way to give to the person who has everything. At your request, a letter will be sent to your honored person informing them of your gift in their name along with a Sweet Surprise! Your tax-deductible gift will help support one of the nation’s most magnificent historic car collections, the beautifully interpreted story of inspiring automotive history and a National Historic Landmark!
Your gift always makes a difference!
