MVAC’s Educational Endowment Receives Donation from Antioch Foundation
Great news for MVAC’s Education Endowment – we just received a $2,500 donation from the Antioch Foundation for our Education Endowment!  Thanks so much to the Antioch Foundation for their support of MVAC’s public outreach efforts.
In challenging economic times such as these, contributions to our Educational Endowment are particularly important and are especially appreciated.  Contributions such as this allows us to continue to bring fascinating information about the area’s pre-European inhabitants and the process of archaeology to adults, teachers, and students through a variety of opportunities such as classroom presentations, fieldwork opportunities, and lectures.  Click on the link below if you would like to make an on-line donation to MVAC.
