River of Time Foundation
River of Time Museum Foundation
The River of Time Museum Foundation was formed in 2003 as a fundraising organization to support the museum’s operations. It is a totally separate organization from the museum with its own Board of Directors. In 2004 the Foundation was determined to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit by the Internal Revenue Service. It was the hope that eventually an endowment would grow which would financially cover the costs of operating the museum.
The Foundation’s Bylaws state: “The purpose of the Foundation is to support and assist in the activities and needs of the River of Time Museum in Fountain Hills AZ 85268 which is operated by the Fountain Hills and Lower Verde River Valley Museum and Historical Society, an Arizona non-profit corporation, by raising and investing money to support the Museum.
