PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!
The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation needs your help to continue to provide free access to our valuable, historical archive of immigration records. For years we have provided these documents free to the public at Ellis Island and on www.ellisisland.org. Our website and content are costly to operate and maintain and this year we have the additional burden of recovering from Hurricane Sandy damage. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support this important initiative and currently we are $25,000 short of the goal. Our friends at FamilySearch have stepped up with an offer to match every gift, dollar for dollar, up to $12,500 to help us reach our goal – making now an even better time to give! We hope you will respond generously.
Most families are very proud of their ancestor’s immigration stories and their family heritage. Ellis Island serves as the epicenter of those stories and historical records for so many Americans. While our website and immigration records remain very popular with the public, donations have not kept pace. We are committed to keeping this vital site open and free for public use. This is another compelling reason we are asking for your help. Please consider making a gift of $50, $75 or $100 in support of these important initiatives.
Our website, archive of immigration records and all our projects survive on philanthropic support from generous donors like you. Your contribution is crucial to our success. Can we count on your support to
keep the Ellis Island Immigration Records Free?
With a donation of $75 or more, we will send you the commemorative book “The Statue of Liberty: A Symbol of Hope and Freedom for 125 Years” as our Thank You! Please make your gift online now at www.ellisisland.org.
Thank you for your ongoing interest and support.
