In 1993 the HCHS established an endowment fund in the Community Foundation of Howard County with an initial gift of $10,000. We were the first organization in the county to do so. Today, thanks to the generosity of our donors, our endowment has grown substantially. With seven funds, our annual income from these funds provides close to $10,000 for HCHS operations and Seiberling Mansion maintenance. 

If you are interested in giving to an existing fund or establishing a new endowment fund to benefit the society, please contact Anne Shaw, anne.shaw@howardcountymuseum.org.
