Help Preserve AEVSD History!

Raised by 37 people in 12 months
As many of you know, the Amherst School District history project has been a passion of mine. I absolutely love everything about it, especially discovering new items (films, photos, artifacts, etc...) and sharing them with others.

It has, however, taken a toll on my bank account. The position is completely voluntary (which is TOTALLY fine-I do it because I love it), however there is not a budget. Therefore, I am looking for creative ways to acquire funding. The costs associated with everything are not outrageous, but there are certainly supplies that would be beneficial in the digitization and preservation of everything that comes in, including film scanners, cameras and other maintenance equipment, from moisture removal products to photo frames and mats.

To see some of the work that has been done thus far, check out www.amhersthistory.com

Thanks for reading!

Wow. I am overwhelmed with the generosity that has been shown. As I initially stated, I was a little uneasy starting a GoFundMe, but everyone who has donated and shared the campaign has demonstrated that there is a true interest to preserve our district's rich history within our wonderful community.

I will be consulting with some experts in the area of photography/videography to determine the best equipment so that each dollar is spent wisely. Stay tuned for updates!

Again, many thanks!!!
