Donations support Operations, the heart of our mission and purpose.

Your contribution is a critical element of our intentional broad base of support. Perhaps you just visited the museum and enjoyed the exhibits. Or maybe you just discovered a new ancestor in your genealogical research. You may be a new visitor who loves history and stories wherever you find them. Or you have come home to visit, having been online with Waseca history.

Whatever your connection, you want to express your appreciation for WCHS. Well, you may do so, here online, or you may download a form if you want to designate your donation. We thank you by listing your name in the quarterly newsletter, the annual report, and with an official letter of acknowledgment from the Executive Director. 

WCHS is the primary steward of Waseca County history. Donations are needed for Operations that cannot be funded with project or capital grant resources. WCHS is a successful nonprofit local historical organization working at its mission to keep the history secure and accessible for all. It is a significant element of the county's culture providing quality of life. In particular, during the last ten years, WCHS has met strategic goals, raised funds for timely building improvements, was approved for many project grants for infrastructure important for new exhibits, programs, and learning. Why wouldn't you support WCHS?

Grain Donations are Win-Win Philanthropy

Every year the Waseca County Historical Society ramps up for year-end Annual Fund giving. As it is also harvest time, we ask the farming community to participate with grain donation—it is a way that will benefit them, too! The Society established accounts at area grain dealers and handlers. You need only inform the grain site manager of your intention to designate a portion of your harvest to benefit WCHS. The amount is determined by the price on the day of designation. There can be significant tax savings for you, the donor, and WCHS gets the donation. Win! Win! 

Why should you support WCHS? Because it is the primary steward of Waseca County history, and agricultural history is a large part of that history. Donations are needed for Operations that cannot be funded with project or capital grant resources. WCHS is a successful nonprofit local historical organization working at its mission to keep the history secure and accessible for all residents—past, present, and future. It provides a significant element of the county’s culture providing quality of life. During that last ten years WCHS has met strategic goals, raised funds for timely building improvements, received many project grants for infrastructure that provided for new exhibits, programs, and learning.
