The Milford Historical Society Endowment Fund Charity Site -


We have established a fund-raising site at the Crowdrise.com web site in order to collect funds for our Milford Historical Society Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund was established in 2015 as an investment vehicle to support our student docent scholarship program and eventually to help fund the operation of the Milford Historical Museum.


Initially 100% of the funds collected will be invested to help fund the 2 or 3 student docent scholarships that we award each year. If the fund investment returns exceed the amount needed to support the scholarships any excess will be added to the general fund to support the operation of the museum. The Museum is now 100% staffed by volunteers, so all moneys go towards operating expenses such as utilities and upkeep.

To contribute to the Endowment Fund, go to -

Please consult you tax preparer about the tax teeatment of a gift to the Fund.
