2014 Annual Fund
Dear Friends of the Wright Museum,
It has been two decades since visionary founder David Wright opened this unique institution on July 16, 1994. David has been gone for over a decade and his dream of educating future generations about the enduring contributions made by WWII-era Americans must become our dream. We hope that you will make a generous donation to the Museum’s annual fund, clearly indicating your belief in this worthy mission.
Typewriter ribbon; dial the telephone; black-out shades; Who’s on first?; Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy; the Four Freedoms paintings; Rosie the Riveter; FDR; Day of Infamy; the Arizona; Iwo Jima; Utah and Omaha Beach. How many of these items and phrases do you think are familiar to young people visiting the Wright? You would be correct if you said very few.
The Wright Museum educates future generations about WW II America by preserving and exhibiting its collection of items representing the home front and the battlefield. Just as importantly, the Wright places the period into historical context by illustrating the enduring legacy of “the greatest generation”. At our Museum history is a living thing that is relevant today – a thread that unites all generations.
When considering your annual fund donation, please think of all the future generations of young Americans that are to come. It is essential that the experiences of this influential period in American history live-on in our national consciousness, and your contribution will truly make a difference for many years to come.
The Wright Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution which receives no state or federal funding. Therefore your donation to our annual fund is essential to the sharing of our collection, displays, educational programs, and special exhibitions such as “Snapshots of D-Day” and “Anne Frank: A History for Today”. Please help us sustain a level of excellence that previous visitors have favorably compared to the Smithsonian and the National WWII Museum. In additional to monetary contributions, we will be happy to explain how you may donate gifts of appreciated stocks or how to make the Museum part of your estate planning.
Thank you for your continuing support.
