In February 2002, we had a fund drive based on a matching grant from
the West Foundation. They matched funds we raised during the calendar
year. In the past grant funding has typically been used to pay for
instructors, restoration specialists, and interpretive programs. Your
donations will help us with day to day restoration materials and restoration
expertise as well as hands-on construction.
we will be using individual's donations as well as exploring grants for implementing technical tools to expand our reach,

graphic content for on-site visitors, and smart-phone applications for our

planning our 10 year strategic vision.
