The Clinton County History Center is participating in Giving Tuesday — a global day of giving and unity that takes place on Tuesday, May 5 — as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the Clinton County History Center relies yearly on memberships, donations, grants, tours and ticketed event sales to preserve, protect and promote local history throughout the community.

The organization is asking for help as a result of COVID-19 temporarily closing their museum and library. Donations are 100-percent tax-deductible and help to support the events, activities and programing they provide in person and digitally online.

Please note, the Center gladly accepts donations year-round. Memberships are also a great way to support the organization.

For more information, visit the “Support” tab on their website at or checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 529 Wilmington OH 45177.
