Support the Museum

Dear Friend:

Make this the moment to support the Voelker Orth Museum, Bird Sanctuary and Victorian Garden! If you have been to any of our programs this year, you have seen that we are growing and serving the diverse needs of our visitors from the community. Our cultural programs educate, entertain and welcome young and old alike while preserving a part of 19th century Flushing in an intimate setting of a parlor garden oasis.

Many of our family events, like Honey Harvest Festival, and our school programs, have more than doubled their attendance in the past two years. Admissions and registration fees cover only a small portion of the costs. Our endowment fund helped to restore the property and create the museum in 1999, this fund continues to support our programs and operations. We engaged a conservation specialist who created for us a condition assessment report. This season we kick-off the fund to restore the windows that give this building so much of its charm; covering eighteen different window styles from six modern stained glass inserts to the upper story eyebrow windows each require their own TLC.

Please become a member, renew at a higher level, invite someone who might enjoy the museum to become a member, or make a donation via mail or by using the donate button on the museum's website. On behalf of the dedicated staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, we thank you in advance for your generous support. Know that any contribution you make is tax-deductible. Please include us in the matching gift program if your company endorses one.

We look forward to seeing you soon at the Museum and good wishes to you this holiday season!


Patricia B. Sherwood, President, Board of Trustees
