$100,000 Goal for RV/MH Hall of Fame Fund Drive
The RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum launched a new fund raising campaign in May to lower its bank loan from 1st Source Bank by $200,000. The goal is to raise $100,000 in voluntary contributions by Aug. 31.
The Robert "Boots" Ingram family has put up a $100,000 challenge grant for the purpose of lowering the Hall's bank loan so each contribution by friends of Hall is actually double the amount contributed a $100 gift, in effect, becomes a $200 gift, according to a news release.
Darryl Searer, president of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation, said, "The Ingrams continue to show their support for the Hall, and their generosity in making this challenge should inspire everyone concerned about the long-range health of our wonderful facility to pitch in and help."
Gifts may be made by mail, in person at the Hall, by phone at (800) 378-8694, or on the Hall website: www.rvmhhalloffame.org. Since the foundation is 501c non-profit organization, all gifts are tax deductible.
Searer said, "Time is limited since the Ingram challenge ends in August so I encourage anyone who can to make their gift early. While we wouldn't turn away a large donation, in reality, no gift is too small because we would like to see industry members as well as those who enjoy the RV lifestyle participate in this fundraiser. We all benefit from the Hall which not only honors industry leaders, but also preserves our heritage and legacy through the Museum and Library.
To make a contribution by mail, send your gift by check or money order to: Challenge, RV/MH Hall of Fame, 21565 Executive Parkway Elkhart, IN 46514.
