* Giving Tuesday

We have been busy applying for grants and seeking individual donors to build the much needed Carriage House behind the Museum. We have currently raised nearly $60,000 of the $260,000 required for construction costs. In the month of November we are participating in a global giving movement called Giving Tuesday. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Your participation, and your donation both help immensely, as grant applications frequently ask for information about how many supporters we have.

We are reaching out to you to ask for a donation to the Carriage House building fund for Giving Tuesday on November 27. Think of some of your favorite Eaton memories with relatives, with friends, at events, at ballgames. Or consider a gift in memory of someone who in their own way made Eaton and the surrounding area a great place to be. Your assistance will make it possible to reach our building fund goal and continue to preserve our shared history.
