To honor its donors, WMQFA adapted Judy Mathieson’s “Mariner Compass” design to make a spectacular, signature quilt. Those who donate $50 or more are recognized as we ascribe their name, or the name of an honoree or loved one on the patchwork.
Hundreds of gifts –large and small- will be captured on the quilt, with placement of names determined by levels of giving. (Click here for more information)
In recognition of our donors, the quilt will periodically hang in the museum exhibition gallery and a plaque depicting donor names will be on permanent display. With a tax-deductible donation, your name will become part of the museum’s history!
We want everyone who visits the Museum to be inspired by what they see and do here. Your gifts allow us to provide the highest possible level of excellence in our exhibits and educational experiences. Send a donation today to support the museum, honor a loved one or give a wish list item. Or, our Museum staff will work with donors one-on-one to ensure your specific giving objectives are fulfilled.
