The Museum of the Waxhaws relies on the support of local businesses, individuals, and government organizations as well as Union County Arts Council to fund the daily operations, maintenance and cultural/historic programs hosted at the Museum. Thank you to our 2014/2015 sponsors. Our fiscal year begins the end of June. We are currently looking for more sponsors to help fund our Museum. We plan and host a number of fundraising events throughout the year to promote and raise money for the Museum. Your contribution allows us to share local history and cultural experiences with people of all ages throughout our county. We are a popular destination for local school field trips. We also have a gold panning and gem mining facility. Weekend visitors, field trips and gem mining are the Museum’s revenue producers.
