2018 Annual Appeal: Thank you to our amazing members!

With just four days left in 2018, we are happy to report that it's been a good year for the California Genealogical Society and Library, thanks to our generous members and supporters! To date, we have received $14,923 in donations to our annual fund. We've also received an extra $10,000 for the Sherman-Haughton Fund, our endowment created for the long-term survival of the society. No donation is too small, and we are grateful for the generosity shown by friends far and near.

As you know, CGS is largely a labor of love, staffed by volunteers who do everything from organizing events, classes, and research trips, to maintaining both our physical and online collections, to greeting library visitors and answering their questions. Even so, we have considerable costs for rent and related expenses. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of our financial officers, we have seen the society through its first 120 years! (1898-2018) With your support, we hope to keep going strong for another century and beyond.
