The Best Ways to Support ICHS

“God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.”
― J.M.Barrie

People ask us “why would I donate my money to the historical society?”
It is an easier proposition to convince someone to donate money to a food shelf, or a homeless program, than it is to make an argument for a donation of money that supports the preservation of historical documents, photos and artifacts. Yet, these pieces of our history really do hold our memories together as a group of people with a connection to Isanti County. Beyond this connection, history is an amazing resource for all of us, the young and the old, but most especially, as we grow older. An artifact you can hold in your hand,a letter from years past, or a photo of a family member can often be our “rose in December”, and can both comfort and activate our feeling of well being and connection to our sense of place and home.

Thank you for considering a donation to the Isanti County Historical Society.

Pavers to ‘Preserve the Past’

Here is your opportunity to “leave your mark on history” in a brick paver at the Isanti County Historical Society. Whether it is your name, or that of a family ancestor, these brick pavers will be displayed at the Heritage Center for all to see.

What better way to commemorate a birth, memoriam, marriage, anniversary, or other milestone in someone’s life. Show business support with your logo, or other business milestone.

“Preserve the Past” fundraiser profits will support the programs of the historical society, and future generations will view your brick paver as an investment in Isanti County History.
