The Neville Public Museum

Neville Public Museum Foundation

At A Glance

The Neville Public Museum Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that funds all exhibits and programs at the Museum. It does this through tax-deductible donations received from individuals, corporations, and businesses; grants from private and corporate foundations; bequests and planned giving; service organizations; memberships in the Friends of the Neville; and proceeds from its Gift Shop.

Each year the Foundation raises money to support the museum by paying for in-house and traveling exhibits, and exhibit-related expenditures, such as: marketing, artifact purchase and conservation, gallery construction and installation materials, printed educational gallery handouts and catalogs, audio-visual equipment, and computer hardware and software used in exhibits, exhibit-related programming and other educational activities.

The Neville Public Museum Foundation works in partnership with the Neville Public Museum of Brown County to provide educational opportunities and services on many different levels and to preserve our extended community’s heritage for generations to come.
