The Overfield Tavern Museum is pleased to announce the formation of a new charitable non-profit corporation, The Overfield Tavern Museum Foundation.  Funds support the preservation, maintenance, operation and development of The Overfield Tavern Museum and its educational programs.

An exciting opportunity to quadruple donations to the Overfield Tavern Museum is available at this time.  The Troy Foundation’s governing board recently set aside $45,700 to use as matching funds for gifts made to 501(c)(3) organizations serving the needs in Troy.  Under their program, each gift of up to $250 to a 501(c)(3) organization will be matched by the Troy Foundation.  The Troy Foundation would double the original gift and distribute a check to the recipient organization in the donor’s name.  The Matching Gift Fund will remain in effect until the funds set aside are depleted.

If the Overfield Tavern Museum is named as the recipient, the donation will be redoubled by a private benefactor.  For example, a $250 donation that is matched by the Troy Foundation becomes a $500 donation to the Overfield Tavern Museum.  The donation will then be doubled by a private benefactor.
