Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum

Corporate Giving

First, AGSEM has been contacting companies that are dedicated to making a difference by giving back to the communities in which they have facilities or where their employees, franchisees, and clients or customers work and live. These companies often define their commitment in terms such as corporate responsibility or community involvement.

We have been asking them to consider our museum when they are providing community organizations with donations, sponsorships, matching funds, or grants. If you are a part of a company or organization that provides community organizations with donations, matching funds or grants, please tell us about your company or organization by contacting our fundraising volunteer, Marion Francis at, our director Rod Groenewold at, or call the museum at (800) 587-2286.

Second, many companies reward their employees for volunteering in the community by matching their employees' donations to community organizations. If your company has a matching donations program, please participate in it and ask for your donations to the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum to be matched. If AG&SEM is not on your company's approved list of community organizations, ask that we be added. Once we are approved, each time you donate money to the museum, your company will donate a matching amount also. This is a wonderful and easy way to benefit our museum during these tough economic times by making your donations count that much more.

If your company needs specific information from AG&SEM, contact Marion Francis at or call 1-800-5-TRACTOR to get the appropriate information sent in.

Last, we will again be raising money for our building fund by holding raffles and auctions throughout this year. AG&SEM wants to emphasize arts, crafts, blacksmithing, and weaving created by our members here at the museum. We want to prepare a collection of items, an AG&SEM Artisans' Collection, made by our members to raffle at the shows. Please help build our AG&SEM Artisans' Collection for this years raffle by donating your craft items to it. These craft items include woodworking, blacksmithing, sewing, tatting, rugs, quilts, knitting, lace work, afghans, framed photographs/paintings, film/video, miniatures, and much more! Turn your items into the office or email for more information.

Thank you very much for all that you do for AG&SEM. If you have any ideas, questions, or suggestions about fundraising for the museum, please contact me at .—Marion Francis
