A Million Dollar Promise

Benton County Historical Society supporters Peter and Rosalie Johnson have presented us with a $1 million challenge. If we can raise $1 million in new gifts and pledges by the end of February 2015, Pete and Rosalie will match that amount.

Rosalie Johnson stressed the importance of people in the future being able to see the struggles and triumphs of previous generations. “Museums are a link, a bridge, between the past and the future,” she said. Pete added that BCHS was particularly important to the couple because, “The Society’s museum is in some ways Oregon State University’s museum too since it now houses the former Horner Museum collection.”

We now need to match the million. Please consider joining the Johnsons by making your own generous gift.
If you have questions about this challenge, would like to discuss a gift or know of others who might add their support, please contact Executive Director Irene Zenev at the museum, 541.929.6230.
