How You Can Help
Join / Donate / Volunteer
The Pottery Museum of Red Wing has been built, filled and funded by donations of individuals' time, money and collections. There is no admission fee to the Museum. Contributions from individuals, in any amount, help cover essential operating costs such as staff, electricity for lights, heating and cooling, security, insurance and maintenance.
We are currently in the midst of a capital campaign, "Preserving the Past, Ensuring our Future," to pay for the building that was purchased on contract for deed in December 2012.
More than $ 397,421 has been paid for building improvements and on the
contract for deed as of January 31, 2015.
BE A PART OF THE FINAL PUSH TO PAY OFF THE $300,000 BALANCE ON THE
NEW MUSEUM BUILDING! Paying the balance early will save thousands of
dollars in interest!
Members of the Capital 300 Club will receive a special pin, certificate,
and have their name added to a space on a special banner hung in the
entrance of the Pottery Museum.
DONATE $1,000 to become one of only 300 members who will belong to the Capital 300 Club.
Contact Museum Manager Robin Wipperling for more information.
