The Dallas Jewish Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies on membership, donations and other financial contributions to accomplish our mission of preservation and education, without which the history of the Greater Dallas Jewish community and its contributions locally, nationally and internationally, would be lost.

GOFUNDME DJHS SCANNER PURCHASE MATCHING FUND

The purpose of this most recent fund is to meet an urgent need for a High-Quality Overhead Scanner. As we reach for our goal of becoming a fully functional online Digital Repository (with a museum model), we need to digitize thousands of photographs, documents, and images of artifacts contained in the Vault.

WE HAVE HAD MATCHING FUNDS COMMITTED, UP TO $5000, to purchase this nearly $10,000 equipment and software.


DONATIONS OF HISTORICAL ITEMS

We also accept donations of historical items of local interest, including photographs, documents, artifacts, and business and organizational records, subject to certain conditions. Please contact Debra Polsky, Executive Director, or call 214-239-7120 for information about donating an item to the collection.

 

All donations and memberships are tax deductible.
