Monetary Donation for Peck Foundation repairs - Matching Funds Challenge

Your donations help us repair the foundation of  the 180-year-old Peck house. We will level a badly-sloping floor, make the bathroom more accessible, add badly-needed storage space. 
Thanks to a generous offer from anonymous members, any gift of at least $100 to the Peck Foundation Project will be matched, up to a total of $4000. Thank you!
