Adopt a Dummy

As part of our fundraising effort to build a new museum building, you can "adopt" one of the Vent Haven Museum residents! The adoption fee is $50 for one year and includes the following perks:

  • Recognition on the dummy's card acknowledging that you've adopted the dummy for a year (see photo as an example). 

  • Acknowledgment and thanks on the Vent Haven Museum blog and Facebook page

  • The right to renew your adoption of the same dummy the following year. 

  • As Vent Haven is a 501(c)3 organization, your contribution may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax attorney as individual situations vary. 

  • Knowledge that you've helped your dummy (and all of the other dummies in the collection, too!) have a state of the art home in our new Vent Haven Museum building.
