Support The Society

As a private, not-for-profit organization, the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society is self-supporting and relies on generous gifts from individuals, foundations and corporations to support our mission. The Historical Society operates the Galena & U.S. Grant Musuem and the Old Blacksmith Shop in downtown Galena, Illinois. 

Your support is not just an investment in the Historical Society today, but it is an investment in our future. Please consider making a one-time donation or a recurring monthly donation.

By donating monthly, your recurring gifts make a difference all year long. Your recurring donation provides a reliable source of funding to support our mission throughout the year. It is convenient, affordable and customizable. Establishing a recurring gift of at least $5* will go a long way in ensuring a successful future for the Historical Society. For questions or to sign up via phone, call 815-777-9129.

Thank you for your dedication to Galena-Jo Daviess County's history!
