Support our Mission
Join YOUR Historical Society
Be First in Line for Exhibits - Special Eductional Programs and the Knowledge You are Standing Up For History
Becoming a member of the Atchison County Historical Society - supports us with your donation, and your name - as someone who cares about our history. We leverage your membership with other funders to bring in future traveling exhbiits, develop youth education programs and more.
There are several levels of membership - from the basic levels - Individual, Non-Profit, Senior and Family Levels; to Business or Corporate Levels. One of the easiest and rewarding is Life Membership - which in additional to securing your membership forward also makes a significant contribution to the Endowment Fund on your behalf.

Donate to support projects or the Endowment Fund
Your directed donations help us fund Education Projects, Exhibits, Collections Care and Acquisition of Artifacts for the Collection. We have onoing need for Education and Collections Care funding. Both are areas where we always have more demand than we can supply.
If you are thinking more long-term the Endowment Fund may fit your plans - the donated funds are invested with the growth and interest only used to fund operations.
Volunteers are the life blood of all non-profit organizations - those who share a passion - in our case for history. We have made the transition from the all-volunteer beginnings to professional staff led by Volunteer Board who span a cross-section of Atchison County. We are developing new volunteer opportunities; from history research, museum guides for special exhibits, computer based work, to outdoors at our Lewis & Clark site.
