Support the Maritime Lighthouse Tower!
More than 285 individual, family, corporate and foundation donors have contributed a total of $5.7 Million to the Jim Kress Maritime Lighthouse Tower $7.3 Million construction capital campaign. This includes $1 Million from the George F. Kress Foundation and a $250,000 Community Development Investment grant from the State of Wisconsin’s Economic Development Corporation.
We currently have a construction fundraising gap of $1.6 Million, and we are asking for your help to close the difference. The original goal of the Maritime Lighthouse Tower Capital Campaign was $5.5 Million. Due to a number of circumstances, the cost of construction has changed significantly.
Included in the changes to the scope of the Maritime Lighthouse Tower project has been a major upgrade to the HVAC systems installed. The new system chosen will ultimately lead the Door County Maritime Museum to apply for accreditation from the American Alliance of Museum and the Smithsonian Institution, providing access to artifact loans from America’s most respected and comprehensive museum collections.
