Becoming a Business Partner

Your Mason County Historical Society operates Historic White Pine Village, a document-rich Research Library, and the Port of Ludington Maritime Museum. We hope to partner with business and industry to further the quality of life for our community.

Your participation as a Business Partner will go a long way toward ensuring the success of our mission–preserving and interpreting our past for this generation and for generations far into the future.  Additionally, our Business Partners support many special events throughout the year. The thousands of visitors who pass through our doors at our two museums experience the rich cultural and maritime history of our area and they will be forever in your debt.  Your generous investment will ensure that our past comes alive in order to inspire and inform our future!

We are a private non-profit organization, and receive absolutely no tax support. Our revenue comes from donations, admissions and sales, and memberships; in those three categories, our revenue is generated through 13% from admissions and gift shop sales, 2% from memberships, and 85% from donations.

As a Business Partner, we will create public acknowledgement of, and positive publicity for, your business.  Apart from the obvious tax benefits of your donation at all levels, we will publish your corporate sponsorship through acknowledgment in our press releases and in many of our publications.  For Platinum level, we will include you in all of our publicity and have your corporate logo on our publications, on our website, and on our social media pages.

We welcome your support as a Business Partner!

Please contact Dr. Rick Plummer, MCHS Executive Director, by phone or e-mail for further information or to schedule a personal appointment: 231.425.3825 –

Many thanks to our business partners!
