Sponsors

The Elbert County Historical Society & Museum’s sponsorship program encompasses the entire museum season.  By becoming a sponsor, you join the museum’s commitment to provide quality exhibits, educational activities and family events, including the annual Pioneer Fourth Celebration, to the residents of Elbert County.  Your donation aligns you with an organization that works to record, maintain and promote the history of Elbert County.

Museum Season sponsorships are collected annually and expire at the end of each calendar year.  Sponsorships support the general operating fund, new and permanent exhibits, development of educational initiatives and public programs, and the historic museum building and its infrastructure.  Museum staffing and hosting duties continue to be fulfilled by dedicated volunteers.

2017 Deadlines
March 1st (includes inclusion in both spring and fall newsletters)
