Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers needed at the Museum!

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our family here at the Superstition Mountain Museum. We have a very short professional staff here at the museum, so basically everything you see at the museum and on the grounds is maintained by our volunteers. Our needs include people to man the gift shops, work the phones, serve as greeters or hospitality hosts in the Chapel, the Barn, on the patio and on the grounds, and people to help with maintenance and grounds keeping. If you think you would like to volunteer in a friendly positive environment and would like to become part of the museum family, please call Jeff Danford at 480-983-4888 X-105 or send and an email Jeff at coordinator@superstitionmountainmuseum.org.

Arizona Gives Day!

Superstition Mountain Museum Participating in Arizona Gives Day, April 3, 2018

The Superstition Mountain Museum will be joining in Arizona Gives Day, along with hundreds of other nonprofits from all over the state on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, to raise much-needed funds. Through azgives.org, Arizonans will be able to support their favorite nonprofit(s) for exactly 24 hours of virtual giving to strive for additional cash incentive prizes.

Sponsored by FirstBank, this 6th annual day of fundraising is a community-led effort to invest in our state. The Arizona Gives program is run by the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum. The event was started in 2013 to connect people with causes they believe in and build a lasting, stronger spirit of philanthropy. Since its inception, Arizona Gives Day has raised more than $10.1 million for nonprofits statewide.

Arizona Gives Day is a grassroots, statewide single day of giving that invites Arizonans to find their favorite causes at azgives.org on April 3, 2018, and donate day-of, or schedule their donations in advance. It is a statewide, 24-hour, online giving campaign that takes place the first Tuesday of April each year. “We are pleased to be involved with Arizona Gives Day,” said Museum Director Liz Nicklus. “It is a great way to draw attention to the needs of the many non-profit organizations who, like us, rely heavily on donations to keep operating.”

From 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 3, supporters of the Superstition Mountain Museum can go to azgives.org and select the museum to make a direct contribution. Donations are crucial to helping fund our museum throughout the year as the museum and the historical society take no public monies.

Though Arizona Gives Day only happens once a year, this website is available for year-round giving with the purpose of building the spirit of philanthropy throughout Arizona’s communities.
