May is Membership Month Activities

Posted in: Announcements



Your dedication has been instrumental to our success, including being voted one of the 2017 Best Area Museums by West Suburban Living Magazine!

In 2016, your support made our own fiscal history – it was the first year we did not have to disburse funds from our investment reserves. Now, because many donations are made at the end of the year, the month of May is a vital time to supplement the Museum’s operating budget.

Join the fun in May:

  • Donate $100 or more and receive a free Membership, a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Museum AND Limited-Edition note cards by Geneva artist Dennis Gramlich, featuring the 100-year-old building at 127 S. First Street, commissioned exclusively for the Geneva History Museum.*
  • Renew or become a Museum Member for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Museum.*
  • Celebrate the 100th Birthday of 127 S. First Street on May 20, where telephone operators connected the first long-distance phone call west of Chicago.

Friends like you make all of our exhibitions and programs possible.  Your contributions touch everything we do at the Geneva History Museum.  I hope you will consider making a tax-deductible gift in May.  Thank you!


Terry Emma, Executive Director

    Have you ever considered making your gift shop items available on-line?
    Just a thought as I am sitting here browsing for T-shirts and/or gift items.

      We have considered it. Just need to find the time to make it happen. Hope to make it available when we redesign the website later this year. In the meantime feel free to call us and we can try to help you over the phone. We have lots of cool Geneva stuff such as postcards, magnets, pottery, t-shirts, sweatshirts and archival images. Thank you!
