If you are interested in the work of the Museum, its programs, interpretive exhibits, service to educators and the preservation of the heritage of this area and wish to support it financially, we appreciate donations at any level.
The operation of the Swannanoa Valley Museum depends on the generosity of the community, both locally and regionally, in the form of memberships, volunteerism, in-kind gifts, and cash donations. The Swannanoa Valley Museum is a 501c3 non-profit, and donations are tax-deductible.
Anyone wishing to send a memorial gift to the museum in honor of a community member may do so in one of two ways. 1) Use the Donate button above and include a note during the checkout process specifying who the gift is honoring. 2) Send a check to our PO Box- P.O. Box 306, Black Mountain, NC 28711. Please do not send checks to our 223 W. State Street address.
Additionally, most of the office furniture and equipment we use has been donated. We accept donations of anything you think a small business could use – printers, computers, paper, file folders, chairs, tables, etc. And if we can’t use it in the Museum we will sell it at our Annual Rummage Sale, which takes place the first Saturday in August. For our Rummage Sale, we will accept any items (except clothing) and collect throughout the year. Please call before dropping off any items. A tax receipt for your in-kind donation is available upon request.
