Donations and membership dollars are critical for operating support,
as are annual appropriations from Waseca County, Waseca County Cities,
and Township Boards and our endowment earnings. Operational costs for
the Museum and the Bailey-Lewer Library average $12,000 per month.
With your support, we can maintain a foundation strong enough to
accommodate new programs, exhibits, technology and staffing.
We are a 501(c)(3) Non Profit organization, accountable to the state
of Minnesota, the county communities, and especially the WCHS members
all over the country. Although WCHS maintains a strong partnership
with Waseca County, WCHS staff are not employees of the county. One of
our goals is to be able to provide living wages to staff in order to
showcase and preserve Waseca County history going forward.
Please celebrate and support the legacy of all people, places and
things that tell the unique story of Waseca county, past, present, and
future. Thank you!
