The Crook County Historical Society Endowment Fund is a permanent financial resource supporting the Society's purpose and the operation of the Museum. A percent of the revenues (not the principal) from the Endowment are committed annually to the general operations of the Society and the A.R. Bowman Memorial Museum's programs. The Endowment Fund is managed for the Society by the Oregon Community Foundation.

THE METHOD

  1. There are several methods you can use to give to the endowment and help insure the museum’s long term financial stability.
