Grants and Gifts Boost Museum's Development
The Southeastern Railway Museum received $11,500 in grants and gifts during fourth quarter, 1998.
The Gwinnett Foundation awarded the museum a $5,000 grant for development of the educational exhibits to be housed in newly-renovated Building One. The Gwinnett Foundation is a public charity created in 1985 to improve community life through increased philanthropy. Funds donated to the Foundation are invested, with the income disbursed as grants to nonprofit organizations working directly for community betterment.
Corporate gifts of $2,000 from BellSouth and $500 from Richport Properties will also benefit the development of the museum's new site.
A $4,000 grant from an anonymous donor has been designated for the installation of climate control in the baggage cars housing the museum's library.
