The Issaquah History Museums are getting ready to join hundreds of other non-profit organizations in the area for two consecutive days of giving called GiveBIG, which will take place on May 5 AND 6 this year.
Issaquah History Museums’ GiveBIG 2020 goal is to raise $10,000 in support of collections care in the coming year. The IHM collections belong to the community, and consist of more than 36,000 photographs, artifacts, and rolling stock. The collections feature back issues of the Issaquah Press from 1900 to 1917, housewares, tools, clothing and quilts, correspondence, and hundreds of other items, each of which tells its own story about Issaquah.
As you probably know, the Issaquah History Museums themselves are not currently open. Many of our events and programs — including revenue-generating activities — for the spring were cancelled. We’re counting on GiveBIG donations to make sure we have the funds we need to care for Issaquah’s collections.
We’ll be celebrating GiveBIG on May 5 & 6, but you can schedule your donation today!
Thank you in advance for Giving BIG!
