My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Corinth Historical Society Inc, Corinth, ME, USA
The Corinth Historical Society has made great strides in the past few years, improving their displays and increasing their level of professionalism. Their quarterly newsletter is one of the finest I have seen come from an organization of this size, comprised entirely of volunteers. In fact, at the time of my Mother's passing, everyone was in agreement that as a family we would work with the Society to set up a segregated fund to which people could contribute money in lieu of flowers at Mom's funeral. Days prior to her passing, Mom even made it clear that she felt the Corinth Historical Society was the only place for her most prized possession: her father's favorite rocking chair. She made that donation above allowing one of her children to have it, so strong was her commitment to the organization. We all agreed that it was a great place for her memory to be honored. We encourage others to think of the needs of the Corinth Historical Society in this way. In the end, any donation there is a gift to everyone.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
work more diligently to encourage young people to take an interest in the history of the town. I think if this group engaged more Scouts or other youth service organizations, homeschoolers and civic groups to participate through meaningful projects that they would be in essence building their membership base for the future--a sure way to safeguard the history of the place.
