After listening to the latest podcast on Asymmetry and thinking about what they said about the Montreal collection, I started thinking about our own local bonsai museum and how we can support it in order to preserve it, because we wouldn’t want to lose it! If you haven’t snooped around their site much, you can see their income and expense report here
and others at the bottom of the page here
Financially, it looks like it needs our help. It seems to be subsisting on pulling from “reserves” while I don’t know where that came from, my assumption would be an endowment from Weyerhauser when they gave it up to its own existence. Regardless, it does not appear to have enough regular income to cover expenses. If you feel appreciative of the museum, or guilted by me, you can donate here
And NO I do not work for them, am not a member, etc etc.
I will be mailing a donation, because I can’t figure out how to do it on their website.
