Donate

Get a wonderful frame-worthy certificate showing you are on the History Makers Wall when you donate $25.00 or more (see below for sample)

To pay by paypal or credit card: Please make your tax-deductible donation to through the paypal button at the bottom of this page. (You can use it even if you don’t have a paypal account)  100% of proceeds go toward the museum. We are all unpaid volunteers, so your donation is multiplied by the volunteers who make this project possible.

To Pay By Check:  send your donation to Mother Jones Heritage Project, 630 Joanne Lane, DeKalb, IL 60115. We are a 501-c-3 organization. The Mother Jones Heritage Project Board and the Museum Board are working cooperatively, and have overlapping boards, so you can be sure that we are all on the same page for the designation of the donations.

Your gift is permanent: Thanks to an Illinois state grant and the cooperation of the city of Mt. Olive, the Museum building is guaranteed perpetually for future generations. This museum will not fade away! However, there is no funding for exhibits — and that is an enormous cost (at least $200 square foot is the lowest-level average).  Your donation provides a foundation for the present and the future.

A variety of levels of donations —all come with a meaningful certificate suitable for framing.  We will soon place your name, or the name of your organization, on our museum webpage History Makers Wall (coming soon!). Your name will also be permanently listed in the museum. You can make a comment about why you are donating (such a  relative who was a breaker boy, someone who struggled for a union) and we’ll post that too on the webpage!
