There are a number of ways you can support the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society:
You can donate any amount to WSGS through the Donate button below, or by sending a check to the address at the bottom of this page. Wisconsin State Genealogical Society is a non-stock, non-profit organization. All donations to the Society are tax deductible. You may specify what your donation should be spent on by indicating that in the "Add Special Instructions to the Vendor" box on the PayPal page.
For $100 you could sponsor one of our quality monthly webinars. Just specify that you'd like your donation to go toward WSGS Webinars in the Special Instructions. If there is a special webinar you'd like to sponsor, add that to the instructions and we'll mention your generosity during the webinar.
Donate to WSGS!
The reason we are able to provide educational conferences, monthly webinars, and expand our online resources is because of volunteers - like you - who are willing to share their time and talent. We have various opportunities to volunteer, from active ongoing commitments to short or one time activities. Regardless of the commitment, you get to play with a great group of people who share a passion of genealogy! Just e-mail our Volunteer Form to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you're interested in helping with!
WSGS partners with genealogical book, product and service vendors in order to provide extra specials and savings for genealogists, as well as raise money for the organization.
