The SRAC Annual Giving Fund supports day-to-day operations of our Center located at 345 Broad Street in Waverly, NY. Contributions to this fund are vitally important to help the Center cover its general operating expenses each year. The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) is a 501c3, (nonprofit organization) and all of our funding comes from our membership, the revenues that we can generate at the Center, and donations from philanthropic organizations and generous individuals like you. In these hard economic times we need your support more than ever.
There are three options to donate $$ to the SRAC Giving Campaign:
SRAC – A Unique Experience; an Exceptional Organization.
• 100% volunteer staffing
• over 50 community events a year
• open five days a week, year round
• FREE field trips for all local schools
• over 300 members
• thousands of artifacts
Other Ways to Support SRAC:
Gifts to the SRAC Annual Giving Fund are welcomed in any amount and are tax deductible. Donors who give to the fund are recognized in the SRAC Journal – SRAC’s periodic publication.
Many companies offer Matching Gift programs for charitable contributions made by their employees, which could double your gift to the Center. Please contact your employer’s Human Resources Department for information.
Tax Benefits for Donating Items:
Private Collections: SRAC will accept private collections (artifacts, books, etc) or will work with collectors for a future donation of an artifact collection and will preserve and use them to benefit the community in the education of our local history for many generations to come.
Items for Resale: Certain items donated to SRAC can be resold for a donation. From items that we can resell in our gift shop to eBay, SRAC would be happy to talk to you about items that you may want to donate to SRAC for resale. Once items are sold, we will be happy to provide documentation of the resale value tax purposes. Please talk to your accountant for additional information concerning the tax deductions available for the items that you want to donate.
