Help the Michigan History Project Bring Archives Alive

Do you have a box of old photos that are of people and places in Michigan? Even if you don't know what's in the pictures. Get in touch and let us know.

The Michigan History Project is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we are very pleased to accept your tax-deductible donation of funds.

If you'd like to make a donation using a credit card, click the button below to go to PayPal, where you can use a credit card (or your PayPal account if you have one) to contribute funds in support of the Michigan History Project.

If you would rather use a different method of payment please get in touch.

The mission of the Michigan History Project is to tell the compelling, inspiring stories of our state's past and thus help to ensure that these stories will be remembered for generations to come.

If the lessons of history aren't told and retold to each generation, they run the risk of being forgotten and possibly lost forever. It isn't enough to keep historical artifacts safe from the degradation of time. If they aren't used to inspire and enlighten then they aren't being fully preserved.

That's why we need your help to bring the archives alive, and keep history relevant and vital.

Our current needs include:

The Michigan History Project isn't just looking for funding support, either.

We might be interested in your old equipment. For instance, if you have a used Nikon Coolscan film scanner, we'd definitely be interested in that. Also, different models of high-end scanners as well as Macintosh computer hardware that's not too old. Other used equipment could be of interest, too.

We'd also like to hear from you if you have a collection of old photos or films or other items gathering dust in your attic or garage and think they could be of historical significance.

Let us help you make your mark on history and get it out of the box!
