Contributions Can Be Many Things!
Do you have Tonopah relics in your home?
Ever wonder what you should do with them?
Donation Of Items
While the Tonopah Historic Mining Park Foundation does greatly appreciate monetary donations towards our various causes, historical items may also be donated. We collect items that help illustrate the mining history of the State of Nevada, and the life surrounding it, which expands into the personal life of the miners: their family life, their homes, their wives and children, and the people who made up the fabric of the mining towns themselves: businesses, politicians, schoolteachers, photographers, outlaws, in-laws, and so many more, including the desert land, local wildlife, and pre-history of this area.
Donations Of Items For Resale
Donations of items to sell in our expanding gift shop are also always welcome. Some examples may include: Nevada topographical maps, new and used books, Nevada-related trinkets, one-of-a-kind homemade items, and generally, anything you think can assist us in raising funds. If you cannot afford a cash donation, this is a great way to contribute.
Donation Of Your Time/Expertise
For those of you who have extra time on your hands, or who feel your knowledge or expertise in a particular field could benefit us, please contact us! We are always looking for ways to engage the public to participate, and perhaps volunteering could be your way of helping us along our path.
Donations Of Written Articles
If you would like to contribute to our publication, The Tailings, by submitting an article based on the history of Nevada mining, or the people and lifestyles of our area, we would love to hear from you! Authors whose stories get published will receive up to 20 copies of our membership publication, free of charge.
Donations Of Family Histories
Another often overlooked donation is that of the family histories of the people who made our Nevada mining towns what they are today. We would love to expand our knowledge of these folks and help to share it with others.
Or, are you looking for some help with figuring out your family history? Contact us and we can recommend a local business to assist you with your search.
