Donate to Launch a Legacy
There are a number of ways to give to the Launching a Legacy Campaign. Whether you are interested in a naming opportunity, buying a plank, or a general gift, it will take every dollar to reach our goal. The Museum recognizes the significance of all donations large and small. Make this gift your legacy.
A Community Making It Happen!
This summer the Greater South Haven Area Community Foundation launched a matching grant fundraising campaign to help us reach our financial goal and start construction on the new Maritime Heritage Center building this fall. We are proud to announce that, because of the support we received from our community and membership we met the match and raised over $45,000 towards the matching grant for a total of $90,000. A huge thanks to those that donated and to the South Haven Community Foundation in helping us reach our goal!
Your contribution through the Foundation can be used to Buy a Plank. If you have made a donation through the SHCF and would like to have it put towards a plank, please contact us at 269-637-8078 ext. 4 or email email@example.com.
Buy a Plank
We are building a legacy one plank at a time! Starting at the corner nearest to the drawbridge on the Historic Jensen Property, the new boardwalk will wrap around the entirety of the Museum’s waterfront. Together each plank will help in creating a boardwalk which will link the campus, exhibits and waterfront, expanding the Museum campus and giving all visitors safe accessibility. There’s a lot of shoreline to cover and it will take 1,400 planks to complete the boardwalk. Each plank is a $1,000 donation. When buying a plank, an engraved plaque will be fastened to the board and serve as a legacy marker for you, your family, your business, your favorite boat, you name it! With your support, the Buy a Plank program will help to create a boardwalk that will stand for generations to come!
Planks can be ordered through the Launching a Legacy Donation Form. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (269) 637-8078. Thank you for helping to preserve history for generations to come!
