The MTFCA and Model T Museum are very grateful to be selected to participate in the Wayne County Foundation (Richmond IN) 2019 Challenge Match! The Foundation will match donations made during the grant period up to $10,000 (their highest level).

There are specific guidelines for donations to receive the matching funds.

• WCF will match 1:1 donations up to $1,000 per donor individual, and/or business, up to $10,000.
Checks made payable to “MTFCA” must be postmarked between November 4–12, 2019
MAIL TO: MTFCA ● P.O. Box 996 ● Richmond, IN 47375-0996

Today an email was sent to MTFCA members. In the message we not only talked about the Challenge Match, but also shared a "Year in Review" report that talks about the changes made during the past year. Here is a link to that email message so you can read all the details: ... l-t-museum

For those of you who have not been to the Museum or it's been a few years, we had 3D interactive videos made of both buildings. There are links in the email message, but here are the direct links. You can virtually walk through all the rooms and look at the exhibits. Hope you will check them out!

Vintage Ford Agency Building

I wanted to give a special thanks to the following members who were kind enough to take time and send comments about their recent experiences at the Museum: Mark Strange, Bob Helgeson, Steve Jelf, Preston Walls, Dan Treace, Rick Ross, Doug Keppler, and Wayne Sheldon. Competition for grant dollars is very tough and it makes a big difference when an organization can show that their members and audience believe in the value of the work and that we are working to fulfill our mission. I really appreciate your help in this way!

Thank you for considering making a donation during this time when your gift can be doubled! We appreciate everything our members and supporters do for the Model T hobby.

If you have any questions about the Challenge Match, the Club or Museum, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you have not done so go to the link and check out the virtual tour of the MTFCA Model T Museum. The Museum is a platform for the club to recruit new members. It is also a source for information for those who wish to research a topic about the Model T. It needs your support and with the Wayne County matching funds up to $10,000 it is a great opportunity to get the best bang for your buck.

You are enjoying reading the questions, answers, advice and other interesting information on this forum due to the generosity of the members of the MTFCA. Help keep this and the legacy of the Model T alive by donating to the challenge match next week. Even better, if you are not a member of the MTFCA get a membership. We have a lot to offer. Stop in at the museum and say Hi. We are still growing.

For those of us that put things off... that seems to be me also... just a reminder that the matching grant from the Wayne County Foundation ends Tue Nov 12. And if you are planning to mail in a contribution I think today or Tue would be the last days you can have the post office "Cancel"/ Post Mark your letter so it will have a date on it that is before Nov 13?

And yes, I also remembered to make a contribution -- (well technically I read a sticky note that said remember to donate before the end of Tue Nov 12) but I got it done. Why? Because I really appreciate what the club, museum and members do. Thanks to all of you who support our hobby and club -- through donations of time, talent, car parts, cars, maintaining the website, posting questions and answers on the forum and driving your T's around so others can find out about them.

Gratefully submitted,

Just a bump this up to the top, I believe we have until 12 midnight tonight to make a donation. We made ours today.
