Roof & Basement Fundraiser

It's time for a new roof! AND a dry basement!

Since 1999 the Plainview Area History Center has been serving the community and researchers from all over the U.S. as well as collecting, preserving, and promoting the history of the area.

But we can't do it alone! Our past support has been generous, and we are counting on that continued generosity to help us with our urgent roof and basement project.

Our goal is $50,000. We've already raised $21,000 and have a matching grant in place from Foresight Bank in Plainview for $5,000 and now we're pushing on to completion! Your tax deductable gift is needed today. Please support this community project by sending in any gift.

Help us get ready for our 15th anniversary with a new roof and a dry basement so we can continue serving the community and researchers from all over the U.S.

Thank You
