Chieftains Museum, Inc., a 501c 3 non-profit organization, is leading the effort to secure the funding needed to rehabilitate and preserve this cultural landscape. Although ambitious, the organization is seeking financial contributions to conduct a campaign and fund the complete vision. The fully realized historic site will include the Ridge Home, historic farm and landscape as well as newly constructed visitor Interpretive Center and facilities. This will be a multi-phase project. While the overall vision of Chieftains Museum, Inc. will not be compromised, it is necessary to prioritize the order of rehabilitation projects to match interpretive needs and financial capability.Our goal is to secure the total amount needed through contributed funds so we do not leave the organization with any debt burden on its annual operations. We will seek these funds from individuals, the local business community, national grants and foundations, regional foundations, community organizations and agencies, as well as municipalities served by the Major Ridge Home. Additionally, the funding vision of the Chieftains Museum / Major Ridge Home is more than a “capital vision.” Legacy giving strategies for endowment growth and planned gifts are being incorporated into solicitation efforts.For more information, please call Heather Shores at 706-291-9494, or send her an e-mail at email@example.com.
