Every little bits helps! And we appreciate your generosity toward our efforts to preserve our local history and keep the art of letterpress alive for future generations to enjoy and appreciate.
Donate to the museum collection

If you have an artifact that matches the time frame and purpose of our collection, we would love to consider incorporating it into the collection at the Panama City Publishing Co. Museum. Please submit this donation offer form to museum@historicstandrews.com, along with a photograph of the piece you’d like to donate, and our Museum Operations and Procedures committee will determine whether your piece would fit into our collection.

Another way to make a difference at the Panama City Publishing Museum is to sponsor the restoration of an artifact at the Museum.

Finally, the Panama City Publishing Museum has an ever-changing wish list, with operations, preservation, and educational needs. Financial, artifact, and wish list items can be gifted as a tax deduction.
