Wish List

Donate to fund supplies we need!

Our list is full of items that support our programs and mission every day.

To make a tax-deductible Wish List gift, write the item in the “honoree” field of your online donation or in the memo line of your personal check.

Contact Director of Development Alison MacKenzie at (585) 294-8252 or via email with any questions. We are so grateful for your help!

1. Firewood: $90 per cord
Our Historic Village has a lot of hearths to stock! Cooking in kitchens, staying warm, and for outdoor fires at events like Spirits and Owl Moon.

2. Sensory Bags: $50 each
Five needed for visitors on tours or at events with sensory needs, who experience our spaces differently.

3. Bird seed & suet: $50
For our Nature Center staff to keep our feathered friends fed – it’s always on our list!

4. Gallons of paint: $40 each
For our miles and miles of fencing! As you see us repair and replace fencing around the Village, it all needs paint.

5. Moveable Museum Cart: $50 
A new dolly for our educators to carry supply totes offsite when providing programs.

6. Sponsor Students: $125 per program
For a virtual or in-person class field trip with the Museum.

7. Camp Costuming: $200
For supplies to ensure all our camp kids have the sizes they need!

8. Laptop: $600
For Interpretation positions that can’t always be at a desk, like our Village Farmer, to share.

9. Tabletop Fryer: $750
For our Food Service staff to be able to offer more menu items when our main restaurant is closed.

10. Livestock Trailer: For our farmers and farm animals! A gently used, 16-foot steel livestock trailer with dual axles, or for a dealer who may be able to give us a discount (blue or black in color if at all possible!).

Thank you to those who have donated Wish List items!

Over the past few years, you have helped the Gallery receive new shelving and archival storage materials, our carpenter purchase new tools, the Nature Center get new binoculars, our Facilities team find new floor mats and oil lamps for our historic buildings, and our restaurants receive a new meat smoker and milk shake machine! We cannot thank you enough.
