On December 8, FASM’s Endowment Committee hosted a tea to honor the first four donors to achieve Permanent status as members of the FASM Endowment Fund. Honorees were presented with engraved plaques featuring the Shaker tree of life and the names of the loved ones honored by each donation.

Permanent members have chosen to invest in the future of the Alfred Shaker Museum by making tax-deductible gifts of $1,000 or more to the Museum’s Endowment Fund. Gifts of less than $1,000 are kept in an accumulating account until they reach $1,000.

FASM aims to accumulate $100,000 in the Endowment Fund, the interest on which will support the museum’s operations and projects. The principal will remain untouched. Such an account can memorialize a deceased loved one or celebrate any special occasion. A contribution of at least $100 will open an account in the fund in the name of the person being remembered or honored and it is hoped that over time the original donor or others will add to it until each individual account reaches permanent status at $1,000.
