Roebling Museum is excited to share that the New Jersey Historical Commission has recommended that the New Jersey Cultural Trust fund our organization for a proposed special project. The Cultural Trust board met on November 6, 2019 to vote on the New Jersey Historical Commission’s recommendation, and unanimously approved our project to be fully funded in the amount of $35,000. This grant will establish a new operating cash reserve fund, which will be managed and monitored in accordance with a board-approved financial policy. We thank the NJHC and the NJCT for their support of the Roebling Museum’s continued efforts to grow, stabilize and strengthen its operations and organizational management.
Roebling Museum is proud to have the renewed support of the PSEG Foundation for our Education and Outreach Programs. The Museum recently received notice of a 2019 grant award in the amount of $5,000. Thank you, once again PSEG Foundation, for investing in this organization, and for supporting our efforts to blend STEM/STEAM learning with history, heritage and the Roebling legacy.
UPDATE: In October, we kicked off our annual giving campaign, and set our sites on an ambitious goal of raising $50,000 before the end of 2019. So far, we’ve raised more than $48,000 toward that goal! Will you add your gift today? Will you help us keep history alive and enlightening at the Roebling Museum?
The Roeblings and their workforce designed, built and put in place the cables for some of the world’s greatest suspension bridges including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the GW Bridge. Today, the Roebling Museum documents, preserves and exhibits the history of the Roebling family, the company village of Roebling, NJ and the Roebling Company. We are inspiring a new generation of makers, builders and doers with STEM learning, historical exhibits, artifacts and archives, and documentation of the NJ heritage that still lives in the former company town we call home.
Every gift and every donation (in any amount)
makes a difference!
It’s important to know that when you give to the Roebling Museum, it’s not the size of your donation that matters most. It’s the hearts, minds and support of those who give that make our fundraising efforts a success.
Whether you give $25 to help us purchase bridge-builder lab kit supplies; or $250, which could provide a scholarship to a local child to attend summer camp; or $450 to cover the cost of transportation for students to experience STEM workshops and walking tours in the historic village of Roebling, NJ; or $10 to purchase a special gift for a Museum volunteer or provide toys and goodies to give to children this holiday season…you are helping to sustain the mission and carry out the vision of the Roebling Museum.
