We’re so grateful that you’re interested in supporting the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum — your contributions help us preserve and celebrate the rich legacy of Johnson County.
The museum holds donated funds and funds raised through museum events in restricted accounts – so these funds are not rolled into the county’s general operating funds. Should you choose to donate, this is where your donation would be held and used. You can receive a charitable contribution tax break for your donation. Here’s a helpful article that talks about donating to governmental agencies. If you have any questions about how the museum handles funding and values transparency, please contact us – we are happy to share.
Donations to general operations may be made here.
