Appalachian history is close to my heart and so I have chosen to add the Museum of Appalachia to “Christy’s Favorite Charities”.Â This is a very tasteful museum that pays tribute to the Appalachian people.Â I hope you will open up your heart and support this wonderful museum.Â I have copied the following information from their website.Â For further information, please visit their site or give them a call.Â Their information is below:
This unique facility has collected, preserved, and made accessible to all the artifacts of a fragile and fascinating part of America. The Museum, the largest of its kind in the nation, tells the story of the Appalachian region through the items left behind by ordinary folks. Some 100,000 visitors, including 4,000 schoolchildren, are captivated each year by this personalized presentation of history.
The Museum was founded nearly 50 years ago through the private enterprise and vision of John Rice Irwin, but today it operates as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) institution.
We need the help of committed individuals like you to preserve the relics of our pastâ??and to educate future generations about our history.
Without your help, this inspiring heritage may be lost.
Weâ??ve established an endowment fund to ensure the Museumâ??s long-term financial stability; we invite you to talk with us about planned giving, estate gifts, and other options for tax-deductible contributions. Please contact:
