Donations and Memorials

A volunteer organization, MCHC operates under the supervision of the McCulloch County Commissioners Court and is prohibited from engaging in active fundraising. Receiving a small annual county appropriation ($1500), it must rely on grant awards, cash and in-kind donations, and memorials to fund its operating costs and many projects.

These projects include monitoring county cemeteries and state historical markers, archiving county history, preserving and protecting endangered properties and sites, and sponsoring projects that promote awareness of McCulloch County's historic significance. Other projects include the Swedish History Project, a digitized project in partnership with the University of North Texas' "Portal to Texas History," and McCulloch County Early Days, a two-day, frontier-themed living history event in April.

Other 2017 projects are the Texas Treasure Business Award ceremony in May during which ten local businesses will receive state-level recognition for more than fifty years of continuous operation, Hispanic History Month in September, a World War I Centennial in November, and Swedish Christmas in December.

Each project has been selected not only for its local significance, but for its broader impact as well. None of the projects is inexpensive!
