Why we are Geneva GEMs...

"I choose to participate as a way to help honor and preserve the history of this community.  A strong community believes and learns from its past in order to grow and foster its future.  My donation may not be large but it is consistent which allows the Geneva History Museum to have some amount of financial stability."    

- Kelly Griffin Vass

"Contributing every month, rather than in a lump sum helps GHM budget, knowing that a specified amount is coming each month on a regular basis."

- Lynn Landberg

"We are GEMs at the Geneva History Museum because we believe our museum is a "Jewel" in the City of Geneva.  Contributing on a monthly basis is most helpful for the museum in their budgeting process and is beneficial to us as a household in our family budget.  So, PLEASE join us in becoming a GEM."

- Colin & Glorianne Campbell

"Geneva History Museum is a growing treasure chest filled with documented memories! Supporting the talented staff in both preserving past stories and recording present day happenings is important to us. Donating automatically, on a monthly basis is easy, and helps our budgeting as well as providing consistent income for the museum."

- Craig & Joyce Elliott

"All of us who care about our community and seek to share and preserve our history are thankful for the incredible work being done by the staff and volunteers at GHM.  Our museum has evolved into one of the most recognized small town museums in the country!

Writing checks, addressing and mailing envelopes is always appreciated, but today electronic monthly payments and particularly payments from retirement accounts, makes this the easiest and most cost-effective way to support GHM.  Become a GEM today!"

- Gary & Joan Hedge

"GHM is one of the Crown Jewels of Geneva, so I am very happy to be one of its GEMs.  Giving Every Month is a great help to the museum, and it is certainly a help to me.  GHM takes care of the donation; and I can relax and enjoy the museum.  I am sure you will appreciate becoming a GEM, and the museum and you both benefit."

- Charys Wheeler

"History, at any level of our experience, is important to enable us to know who we are as a community and as individuals.  As a lifetime member of this community of Geneva, I know that my identity and that of everyone who has lived here is in some way informed and anchored by it.  I can’’t imagine not taking responsibility for gathering and keeping that record and so I must financially support that work."

- Mary Jaeger

A big thank you to our sponsors who made this fun event possible!  We are grateful for all of your support.
