Boone County Big Give • Friday, December 2, 2016

The Boone County Big Give is an awareness campaign geared toward educating people about charitable organizations in Boone County.  Donate to any of the participating organizations by stopping by any Giving Station, which will be set up at all bank locations throughout Boone County, giving online or at the organization(s) of your choice. 100% of all gifts go directly to the designated organizations. Your gift will help the organization you donate to receive matching funds, made possible by Cornerstone Bank, Pillen Family Farms, Scot Daniels St. Farm Ins., Valero Renewables, Boone County Bank, Green Line Equip., Grosch Irr., John Kennedy , Stock Realty/Rex Mahoney and Applied Connective.

Plus, special events hosted by the participating organizations are scheduled. Please visit for a full schedule.

The Boone County Historical Society is raising funds to help us paint and/or reshingle our gas station, country school house and the Gladdem farmhouse located next to our main museum building.

The Historical Society will be hosting a Big Give Open House from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2nd.  This will be held in our main museum building located at the entrance to the Boone County Fairgrounds (on the southwest side of Albion).  Please stop by to enjoy refreshments and HEAT made possible by furnaces funded in part by last year’s Big Give.

Please support the Boone County Historical Society and other worthy charitable groups from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on December 2!

In 2014 our organization raised funds for the restoration of our buggy.  Unfortunately, the restorer we had planed to use has retired.  We are currently looking for someone else to do this work and no funds donated to this project will be used for any other purpose.
