Susan Theisan (Endowment Director) delivers our quarterly disbursment check to Fred Polinder (Museum Board President) at our October Board Meeting.

The Museum's Endowment Foundation is a reliable part of its income.  This source of income plays a vital roll and assists in maintaining the key operating needs of the Museum and the building.

The Endowment contributes to us every year on a quarterly basis.  The amount of the disbursement is related to the financial position and end-of-year dividends reported from the previous year.  The yield of their efforts has steadily increased year-over-year and is a direct result of the combined knowledge each board member has in his/her field of business and finance.  Their diligence to secure and invest these funds will make sure the Museum has the financial security to operate well into the future.

This year the Endowment Foundation is delighted to bestow

the museum with its quarterly disbursement of
