The Museum of the San Ramon Valley is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1985.
The Museum is not funded by any government entity. Other than the bookkeeping service and 20 hours a week of administrative support, all Museum activities are accomplished by over 200 unpaid volunteers.
About 50% of the Museum's funding comes from membership dues including the generous support of the 1891 Society. Most of the balance comes in the form of grants and sponsorships from community minded businesses and groups including those featured on this page.
We thank our generous sponsors for their ongoing support.
The Museum solicits sponsors for every major exhibit and for Train Day, our annual fundraiser. Sponsors may also advertise in the Branch Line newsletter and the annually printed volunteer book.
Memorial donations are acknowleged with a letter to the donor and to the family of the person being remembered.
The Museum is in need of reliable and low cost long term storage for displays and artifacts, and will welcome a gift of land or structures that will fulfill that need.
All cash gifts are recordkept so that cumulative donations of $1,000 or more can be recognized on the Museum's donor wall. Donors move up in category as their cumulative totals reach higher levels.
