The King and Queen Historical Society and Tavern Museum welcome any donation of any size to help sustain its existence and support the specific projects that are undertaken to preserve county history. Although membership dues help defray some costs, the Society and Tavern Museum are dependent on gifts to keep operating. At times special requests for donations are made to ensure that important exhibits can be provided. Most recently, donations have contributed to the restoration of the 18th Century John Taylor sundial and the archaeological survey of the Donald Robertson School site. The Society also offers a small scholarship to two qualifying high school seniors to encourage them to continue their education.
An Endowment Fund has been established for the Tavern Museum to help sustain it in the future, although it is not yet large enough to ensure total sustainability.
Donations may be made in honor of a named person or in memory of a named person.
The Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) Corporation and donations are deductible as allowed by the Internal Revenue Code.
