WCHAS launched a formal fundraiser in December to create a dedicated fund to support the preservation of the historic Morgan House. We are pleased to report that through March 2017 $8,925 in donations have been received. This brings us to 25.5 % of our goal of raising $35,000. Our friends at the Kuenzl Foundation are supporting our efforts with a dollar-for-dollar match. If we fully achieve our goal, WCHAS will have an account with $70,000 dedicated solely to the maintenance and preservation of the Morgan House. Some of the major expenses we will face in the near future include a new roof and driveway. Additionally, as we found out in late 2015-16, unanticipated repairs can be significant. Over $32,000 in unexpected costly repairs were performed during that time. We are working to get ahead of things by thoughtful planning and taking positive preemptive measures with challenges we will certainly face. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
If you’d like to support our effort, your tax-deductible donation can be sent to the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation by filling out the Donation Form. We cannot do this without your help. As always, your support to preserve local history is greatly appreciated.
