The Bangor Historical Society has applied for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status with the Internal Revenue Service. This means that your donation should be counted as a full deduction by all means of the law as stated by the IRS.
You can make a donation to the Bangor Historical Society's general fund, in which it will be used as the Society sees fit. Or, you can make a donation to the Building Fund of the Society and your contribution will go toward the development of a community museum. There are plans for a memorial plaque in the future and contributions will be taken to honor those who have loved Bangor and called this community their home.
You can also help by purchasing the award winning book "Bangor: Our History in Photographs" or you can buy our current calendar. Proceeds from the sale of these two items will help fund the Bangor Historical Society. Both are available at the Bangor Antique Mall or by contacting us.
If you have historical items of interest, pertaining to Bangor or not, the Historical Society will gladly find a home where they will be appreciated for all to see. Also, if you would like to donate items that have a value for resale, we could give you a receipt that would be deductible on your income tax. Items such as; property, homes, antiques, cars, boats, postcards, furniture, etc., all have a value for resale. Estate planning is also a means of support. Remembering the Bangor Historical Society in your will or trust can help greatly to preserve our local history.
These are a few ways to help support the Bangor Historical Society. Donations can not be too large or too small. Whatever you decide, you are helping preserve the history of Bangor for future generations. Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you for your support.
