Help us keep the CHHS going by contributing to our GoFundMe Campaign!

The CHHS needs your help to maintain its grounds and buildings and collections. Please take a look at our GoFundMe capital campaign fundraiser here and consider giving us a donation or becoming a member.
We’re planning a lot of events for next year and would like to be able to maintain our properties to further our mission of preserving and presenting the industrial history of the Rosendale Cement District, and continue to present fantastic events in the Widow Jane Mine and on the grounds of the Snyder Estate.

As you consider making a contribution, please be aware there have been some changes to the tax laws regarding charitable deductions:
Under the CARES Act, there is the addition of a new charitable deduction up to $300 on your 2020 taxes for your cash donations made to a 501(c)(3) organization even if you don’t itemize your deductions. (Typically if you make a charitable donation to a qualified charity, you can deduct the contribution only if you itemize your deductions). The CARES Act also temporarily eliminates the limit placed on the number of cash contributions you can deduct if you itemize your deductions (usually, cash donations that you can deduct are limited to 60% of your adjusted gross income, but the CARES Act eliminates the limit for 2020 returns).
