The Community Trust Foundation is stepping up to help non-profits during the current health emergency.
The Foundation is providing the Allegany Museum with a subscription to the teleconferencing system called Zoom.
The system will allow the Museum to hold virtual meetings without participants having to be present in the same room. Everyone can use their home computer to attend. The Community Trust Foundation is sponsoring the Museum at “Pro” level.
The Pro level allows up to 100 people to participate in each meeting. Allegany Museum, which is solely run by volunteers, would not reach that number but if you and your friends offer to volunteer, we could make it!
The Museum is the first nonprofit to get this CTF grant approval.
The Community Trust Foundation has also been the major sponsor of the George Washington Whiskey Rebellion Fest for then past two years and will be sponsoring this year’s Fest as well. Due to the covid 19 pandemic, the organizing committee is considering moving the event to later in 2020.
Keep up to date with the Fest at Whiskey Rebellion Cumberland on Facebook.
All proceeds of the Fest go to keeping Allegany Museum open and telling the great stories of our region.
