Annual Appeal

Make a one-time donation

At the end of each year, AARCH appeals to its members and friends for an additional contribution to the organization, often to support special programs and projects we’re undertaking.

The 2016 Appeal funded youth outreach programs such as:

  • The Keeseville Quest, a scavenger hunt through town to find historic buildings, created by 5th grade students at Keeseville Elementary School.
  • A hands-on window restoration workshop with teens training in the construction trades.
  • A week-long architecture class at Summer Safari, a youth enrichment program through SUNY Plattsburgh.

Past Appeal donations have funded:

  • The publication of Santanoni: From Japanese Temple to Life at an Adirondack Great Camp.
  • Staff interpreters and daily tours at Great Camp Santanoni.
  • Effective advocacy work for threatened historic properties like the Old Stone Barracks, Bow Bridge, Debar Pond Lodge, Harriman Cottage, and the McIntyre Furnace.

We greatly appreciate any donation, large or small. Most Appeal support comes as cash contributions.
