Pledge your support for the Museum and Heritage Site
Pledges can be designated for a particular project or undesignated. Pledges that are undesignated will be used for Upper Swan Valley Historical Society projects such as outdoor exhibits, insurance, utilities, security, repairs, preserving and interpreting collections, and other expenses necessary for the operation of the Museum and Heritage Site. We thank you. Future generations will thank you too!

Keeping the Swan Valley Museum open requires a team of dedicated volunteers, inspired members and consistent financial support in order to have a viable operation and be able to pay the many expenses such as electricity, heat, maintenance, insurance, taxes and upgrades. To this end we are actively growing our membership and inviting new donors along on our exciting journey. As the saying goes "many hands make light work" and this endeavor is no different. We invite you to begin, or continue, your support of the USVHS through membership, volunteering or donations (one time, monthly, yearly or lifetime options).
We are proud to call Swan Valley our home and look forward to continuing to preserve our rich history!
