Exciting News on the McRae Collection
We are heading to 3rd in our attempt to preserve the McRae Archival Collection. Our next to the last payment of $50,000 is due at the end of January 2008, leaving only one remaining payment of $50,000 due in July.
Our initial committment with our authority, the SC Budget & Control Board in October of 2006, was that if we could raise half of the $250,000 purchase price through private and corporations, then the State would match that amount. So far, we have committments and donations totaling $114,653! We are within $10,500 of our goal which has to be met by July 2007!
The Museum staff really appreciates the support of the members of the Authentic Campaigner (see our posted recently thank you under the fundraising section of this website), but we hope that your support will continue and can see us to the end of this wonderful project! Please help us meet our upcoming payments at the end of January and July of 2008! Thanks so much for all your support!
PS. I have some exciting, upcoming news regarding this collection which I will continue in another post very soon! Thanks again!
