Support the Museum

Dear Friend:

Make this holiday season a time to support the Voelker Orth Museum Bird Sanctuary and Victorian Garden! If you have been to any of our programs this past year, you could see that we are growing and serving the diverse needs of our visitors. Our cultural programs educate, entertain and welcome young and old alike while preserving a part of 19th century Flushing in an intimate setting with a garden oasis.

Many of our family events, like Honey Harvest Festival and school group programs, have doubled their attendance in the past year. Admissions and registration fees cover only a small portion of our costs. An endowment fund helped to restore the property and create the museum in 1999. This fund continues to support our programs and operations, but needs to be supplemented to bring the Voelker Orth Museum into the future. The Voelker and Orth family's generous investment in starting this organization has taken root and your support will help nourish it.

On behalf of the dedicated staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, we thank you in advance for your support. This year we have set a goal of $30,000 in order to help support our expanding programs and the upkeep of house and garden. Know that any contribution you make is tax-deductible. Please complete the form below and enclose in the envelope provided.

Thank you for your consideration and we wish you and your family a happy holiday season.


Patricia B. Sherwood, President, Board of Trustees
