Donations & Memberships – Make a Difference

The Mr. Local History Project is a 501c3 all volunteer non-profit organization. We have two goals. One is to create an ongoing high school scholarship fund to present annually to a Senior High School recipient. The second is to promote local history. Your contribution goes fully to support those two efforts.

COVID -19 Update:
NOW MORE THAN EVER WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. The virus has changed how we support history in our hometown area. Please consider donating to this small yet fragile 501C3 non-profit. Your donations are fully tax deductible and appreciated. WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE WILL SURVIVE. BE SAFE-GOD BLESS. AND THANK YOU.
