You’ve survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday and now the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society invites you to join an international movement connecting nonprofits like us to donors like you – it’s #GivingTuesday! The official #GivingTuesday website describes this unique holiday as “a global day dedicated to giving back” when “charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate giving and to give.” This December 2, 2014 is #GivingTuesday and we wanted to take a moment to encourage you to give to the Historical Society on this special day.
We’ve partnered with Network for Good to make your donation go even further. For one day only, December 2, Network for Good will match a percentage of any donation you make to the Historical Society! This is a great way to make your dollar go even further while supporting history’s home in Harbor Springs. Click the button below to donate today! Please feel free to donate after December 2 as well, every donation helps!
The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is a private nonprofit that relies on your generosity to sustain our efforts. With your support in 2014 we have shared stories both large and small, old and new with thousands of people.
We told the story of the passenger pigeon—once the most abundant bird in North America and now extinct. Through a national movement called Project Passenger Pigeon, we developed a special exhibit focused entirely on this bird.
During our popular Harbor History Talk series, we reached back in time to share stories of the NM, the Northern Michigan sloop, for its 80th anniversary and tapped our feet to the tunes of the Beach Boys while learning about clubs Manitou and Ponytail.
We celebrated stories through special events too including Shay Days (which honored inventor Ephraim Shay), our second annual Blessing of the Fleet and Summer White Party on Harbor Springs’ historic waterfront and our tour of the Little Traverse Lighthouse.
Won’t you consider making a donation to the Historical Society on this unique day of giving?
If you’ve already given this year, know that we sincerely appreciate your support. Thank you!
