Keeler Tavern Museum Capital Campaign


As we undertook our first Capital Campaign in 30 years to support our transformation into a regional history center, we asked the community to support a preliminary campaign goal of $1.5 million. The response was gratifying and has heartened us in ways that go well beyond a financial scorecard. The campaign and the transformation both continue with the expectation that they will enable us to deploy our physical and intellectual resources for maximum benefit to current and future generations.

The individuals and organizations named here made commitments to the Capital Campaign through June 30, 2018. If an employer matched a donor’s gift, the originating donor’s name appears in the category that captures the combined total. As the campaign continues through 2020, pledges will be added to this list and recognized yearly.
