Fire Museum Fundraising
As a small museum, we depend on individual donors and corporate sponsors for new projects and exhibits, as well as operational costs and other ongoing events. On our blog, you can read about the various objects, events, and purposes we are currently seeking funds for. We encourage you to give to a project you feel a connection to, and don't be shy to suggest to your friends and relatives that they do the same! If you are interested in donating but do not see something that catches your eye, please contact us and we will be happy to speak with you. As a reminder, the Fire Museum of Maryland is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations to the Museum are tax-exempt to the extent allowed by law.
