Volunteers have always played a critical role for the Evansville Museum. Your role as a docent or explainer is to cultivate and develop and shape the Institution’s future by helping to raise Evansville Museum’s profile, advocating for support, and securing resources for specific initiatives.[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]

Planned Giving

You may designate the proceeds of your gift for the Museum’s ongoing operations or request that they be added to the Evansville Museum Endowment Fund. Investments of the Evansville Museum Endowment Fund adhere to the investment policy guidelines adopted by the Museum in 1981. The principle remains intact; only the annual income is used by the Museum.

In addition, gifts to both the Museum’s General Operating Budget and to its Endowment Fund may be either restricted or unrestricted. Restricted gifts are designated by the donor for a specific use. Unrestricted gifts are allocated at the discretion of the Museum’s Trustees wherever the need is greatest.
