A donation of $3.50 helps us to “Offset Transaction Fees” and ensure that 100% of your donation goes to The Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum . This is because, on average, we are charged about $3.50 in fees to process your payment electronically. If you want to make sure every penny you give goes to The Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum, please consider adding the $3.50 to offset transaction fees the credit card processing companies charge to process your order. We’re a small non-profit – no one takes a salary or receives money for their time, energy, and sweat. So thanks for considering this.
