The GEM donor program is an exciting program that allows our members a flexible and easy way to support the mission of DCHS. GEM membership stands for Giving Every Month. It is an alternative to traditional annual membership, which replaces your yearly dues with a reoccurring monthly payment from your bank. No more membership expiration or renewal letters!

Why change your membership to GEM?
It’s easy! Regular donations can be made in affordable monthly payments
Receive member benefits
No member renewal date to remember
No lapse in member benefits
Pre-authorized withdrawal from checking accounts (ACH)
Save postage and time with automatic transactions
Flexibility. Donors can easily increase, decrease, pause or stop their gift at any time
A cumulative tax receipt is issued annually
Staying informed through regular progress updates
Receive a thank you gift for joining

Your monthly payment would help create a reliable fund for the daily operations of the General Crook House Museum and Library Archive Center. For example, a $5 monthly gift  allows us to purchase 50 archival quality sleeves for historic photos. For less than 17 cents a day, you can preserve local history for generations to come. The support of our GEM members also reduces our postage and fundraising costs, helps create a higher and more stable monthly budget and strengthens our relationship with our donors.
