Make A Gift




Endowment Fund

The WCHS endowment is a perpetual fund for everyday administrative and operating expenses. Only the earned income it yields is used. The principal in the endowment fund remains untouched, permitting it to continue to grow.  You may make a tax-deductible donation specifically to the Endowment Fund, PO Box 167, Stillwater, MN 55082.


Your membership in the Society directly supports the society’s programs, gives you a subscription to Historical Whipserings and grants free admission to the WCHS museums.


The Washington County Historical Society is always looking for volunteers of all ages with a variety of talents and skills to help in our library and museums at Scandia and Stillwater.
