In 2021, our 75th anniversary, GFO established a fund to purchase a permanent home.
A permanent home will allow us to:
We seek to raise a minimum of $500,000 for a down payment on a mortgage. Funds to cover the costs of renovating the new space and moving expenses must be raised as well.
Our hope is to find a building, renovate it to our needs, and move in by late spring, 2026 - our 80th anniversary.
Will you invest in a stable future for the GFO and the genealogists following in our footsteps?

You may be able to double your gift through a matching gift program available through your former or current employer. We recommend you contact your current or former employer's HR department to find out if this is an option.

Any New Home funds not used for a new home or move will be transferred to the GFO Endowment Fund.
