Campaign For the People of St Lawrence County

In February, the SLCHA Board of Trustees quietly launched the Campaign for the People of St. Lawrence County, a three-year, $500,000 fund drive to increase our internal endowment, ensuring our long-term financial survivability. Additional investment income will provide an ongoing reliable source of income and help to:

  • Fund new exhibits and programming
  • Expand educational outreach activities
  • Defray ever-increasing operating costs
  • Create greater awareness of this cultural treasure to drive tourism

We are pleased to have raised 54% of our goal in the first year of this three-year effort; however, we still have a long way to go to reach our goal. We hope you will participate in this important fund drive for the future of SLCHA.

Please remember:

  • Pledges may be honored over a two-year period, monthly, quarterly or annually
  • Payments may be made by check (payable to SLCHA), VISA, MasterCard or Discover
  • Bequests and gifts of stock are also appreciated
