The Dubois County Museum Board invites the public to become a Supporting Member of the Dubois County Museum with a 100 X a $50.00 Donation to the Dubois County Community Fund-for Museum Matching Dollar Foundation Financial Growth Drive. Thanks to John Fierst and his family, a designated account was established within the Dubois County Community Foundation, for the purpose of developing a sustaining financial fund for the Dubois County Museum. Today this field of interest fund has grown from the initial investment of five thousand dollars to a sum of seventeen thousand dollars. The financial growth within this fund, has come from private individual donors. The good news is that in order to assist this fund grow in dollar value, the Dubois County Community Foundation, will give the Dubois County Museum a $5,000.00 matching dollar grant. This dollar match grant states that for every dollar that is contributed to the Dubois County Museum’s field of interest account within the next six month, April until October 2016, the Dubois Community Foundation will match dollar for dollar up to $5,000.00. To accomplish our goal and to receive the full value of this $5,000.00 matching fund, we are looking for 100 supporting donors or more who will support this cause with a $50.00 donation to the Dubois County Museum’s field of interest account within the Dubois County Community Foundation. One hundred, fifty dollar donors will result in a five thousand dollar match, and help our field of interest account grow in value by ten thousand dollars. What a great opportunity this is for our supporters to make John Fierst’s goal of a strong Dubois County Community Foundation Fund a strong long term financial resource for our museum. We ask you to become a partner of this special 100 by $50.00 supporting group today. Send your donation to the Dubois County Museum at 2704 N. Newton Street Jasper In. 47546, C/O Peg Wagner Treasurer, or send you donation directly to the Dubois County Community Foundation Office at 600 McCrillus St. P.O.
