Dear SCGS Members and Family History Friends,

It’s known fact that people give to causes that make a difference in their lives. The SCGS strives to make a small but important difference in your life by supporting your family history journey. We want to help you create a legacy – your family’s history – factual, accessible, enduring.

Run entirely by your fellow genealogist volunteers, the SCGS builds conferences, webinars, interest group meetings and on-site classes to forward your education. We maintain the SCGS Library with free access to a wide range of online databases and a 40,000-volume research library. We offer research services for those who can’t visit our library in person, or who need assistance in furthering their research. From the beginner to the professional genealogist, we strive to meet you where your need is right now.

Your family history work will leave a positive impact for generations. We’d like to continue to be part of that work by asking your support today.

Here are ways you can help:

  • Donate Now and during our annual fund raiser – the Century Club. Our membership dues support less than 40% of the cost of the services we provide. Please help us maintain the level of support you demand and to grow in areas that you need.
  • Donate to the SCGS during Giving Tuesday (November 27, 2018) – the annual day for Non-Profit fundraising. 
  • AmazonSmile – Choose the SCGS as your charity of choice when shopping on Amazon. Signing up costs you no more than a minute of your time and with every purchase you make, Amazon will make a donation to SCGS.
  • Ralphs – Shopping for groceries? Enter SCGS as your choice for their charitable contributions.
  • Volunteer – We always have a place for your ideas, your passions and your smile. Whether you have a couple of hours a month or several days a week, from home or in our facilities, please join the team and be part of the SCGS family of volunteers. Email Diane today at Volunteers@SCGSgenealogy.com

Please show us your support by donating today. Every donation makes a difference.

We look forward to serving you for years to come.
