Your donation to MHC will be greatly appreciated.  Any start up business faces challenges, but in uncertain economic times, non-profits and especially museums face budgetary cut backs and funding issues on a regular basis.  Yet, museums are critical for us to understand the past, appreciate the present and influence the future.

MHC depends on you, your commitment and efforts.  For you, our donors, supporters and patrons really are the ones of importance and consequence that make all museums matter.  "Museums are critical for us:  to understand the past, appreciate the present and influence the future." -- Roy Slade, Director Emeritus, Cranbrook Art Museum (excerpt taken from speech given by Mr. Slade entitled, "Why Museums Matter".)

Description of what I’d like to donate:

In late 2007 and early 2008, MHC board members began a community fund raising drive to develop much needed funds that would enable us to receive grant awards.   The success of that fundraising drive was due to the following organizations and individuals that made significant monetary or in-kind contributions to MHC in a show of support and because of their love for our City and it's rich history.  In appreciation, we recognize them here and in a beautiful engraved plaque that is on display prominently in the museum. 

In grateful acknowledgement of our Inaugural Honorary Benefactors

In Memoriam:  The MHC board would like to acknowledge two of our founding board members that have passed,
