The RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum launched a new fundraising campaign in May to lower its bank loan from 1st Source Bank by $200,000. According to a news release, the goal is to raise $100,000 in voluntary contributions by August 31.

The Boots Ingram family has put up a $100,000 challenge grant for the purpose of lowering the Hall’s bank loan, in effect doubling the amount contributed.

Darryl Searer, president of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation, said, “The Ingrams continue to show their support for the Hall, and their generosity in making this challenge should inspire everyone concerned about the long-range health of our wonderful facility to pitch in and help.”

Gifts may be made by mail, in person at the Hall, by phone at 800-378-8694, or on the Hall web site: www.rvmhhalloffame.org. Since the foundation is 501c non-profit organization, all gifts are tax deductible.

Searer said, “Time is limited since the Ingram challenge ends in August, so I encourage anyone who can to make their gift early. While we wouldn’t turn away a large donation, in reality, no gift is too small because we would like to see industry members as well as those who enjoy the RV lifestyle participate in this fund raiser. We all benefit from the Hall which not honors industry leaders, but also preserves our heritage and legacy through the Museum and Library.
