The mission of the Museum  — “. . . to preserve Hungarian Culture. . . ” — and the programs of the Society  require continued funding.  The Endowment Fund was established to provide a reliable base of partial support in perpetuity.  A limitation of spending not more than 6% of the Fund’s value annually means permanent support will be assured.  Please consider a gift to this Fund that will “live forever,” enriching our community and connecting it to our Hungarian Heritage.
