SAGHS Memorial Program

The SAGHS Memorial Program accepts donations in honor or memory of any person, living or deceased. The Book Committee uses the memorial funds to purchase books for the West Texas Collection, typically in an area researched by the honored person. The WTC places a plate in each book indicating whom the book is honoring and contributors to the memorial. The Speakers Fund is used to defray the costs of having speakers come to each monthly meeting and present their program.

Donations may be mailed to:  
SAGHS, Inc.

You may also make a donation online through PayPal:

 

Please indicate who you are honoring with your donation and/or if it is for a particular fund.
