Because History Matters
Endowment Campaign
Recognition Plan

Because History Matters Endowment Campaign:
Recognition Plan

All contributions of $1,000 or more to the Fall River Historical Society Because History Matters Campaign will be recognized unless the donor wishes to remain anonymous.

All gifts and pledges are confidential. Donors may choose to make their gifts in honor or in memory of another person, or they may choose to simply have their own names be recognized. Contributors at higher levels may have a particular area of interest in which to memorialize their gift.

All gifts and pledges are unrestricted unless specifically restricted by the donor at the time of the donation.

Recognition Wall
All gifts of $1,000 and more will be permanently recognized on a recognition wall in the museum building.

Naming Rights
Additional recognition opportunities are available in the form of naming rights for a particular room or exhibit. If interested, please discuss with the curator, Michael Martins.

Print, Electronic Media & Special Events
Recognition to our generous donors will be given whenever appropriate in our annual reports, program guides, website, and other venues.
