Matching Gift Campaign
WRIGHT MUSEUM OF WORLD WAR II
Wright Museum Matching Gift Challenge
The Wright Museum has received an anonymous $50,000 gift to be used for its 2014 operating needs. The generous and unexpected gift comes with a challenge to the museum. If the Wright can itself raise a matching $50,000 for its endowment fund by September 30, 2014, the anonymous donor will give another $50,000 to the Wright.
The Wright Museum gratefully accepts the matching challenge and is now seeking donations in any amount to reach the $50,000 goal. This is a wonderful opportunity for supporters of the Wright to double their donation to the Museum whose mission is to educate future generations about the contributions and the enduring legacy of World War II-era Americans.
If you are a Wright Museum member, an annual visitor, or someone who has visited only once - but loved what you saw, we need your help now. A strong endowment will ensure that the Wright can continue its mission for many years to come. Contributions to the Endowment Fund in any amount are welcomed, and will be matched anonymously dollar-for-dollar until the $50,000 goal is achieved.
The fastest, easiest way to make a donation is online:
Contributions may also be made by check payable to the Wright Museum, and noted "matching challenge". Mailing address: Wright Museum, P.O. Box 1212, Wolfeboro, NH 03894. Call 603-569-1212 to donate by credit card.
