Save The Scottish Tartans Museum, NC

On November 30th-St. Andrew's Day, the launching to help the Scottish Tartans Museum raise funds for their Building Fund Capital Campaign begins!

This opportunity to purchase their building in which it currently
resides comes at a critical time of growth for the Museum.
In December, they will proudly unveil their exhibit expansion project, and have been working hard for months on making much-needed upgrades on building systems and accessibility. But all that progress is in danger, if the building is sold to a third party who does not wish to continue with the Museum as a tenant. Being able to purchase the building means security, stability, and justification for further improvements and expanded exhibits and member services for years to come.

If every member of every Clan organization in North America
donated $1, we could purchase the building at least twice over. There is power in our numbers. And this museum – the only one of its kind outside of Scotland – belongs to all of us. Please consider a tax-deductible donation in any amount you can provide this holiday season. And please encourage your Clan membership to do the same. Together we can all #SaveTheTartans!

TO DONATE: http://scottishtartans.org/membership OR

Mail your check made payable to The Scottish Tartans Museum to:
86 E Main Street, Franklin, NC 28734
Please write “Building Fund” on the memo line
