This is YOUR Museum!

We consider the Feline Historical Museum to be YOUR museum. So, how can you help us to make sure that it grows and prospers?

Monetary donations to the CFA Foundation are what keeps the museum open, allow us to maintain the collection, purchase additional historical items as they become available, and basically make the museum an enjoyable place to visit. Money must be raised to cover the cost of additional display cases, and the storage of items not currently on display. Any and all donations are greatfully accepted and appreciated.

Many of us have realized that our cherished collections will not be treasured by those we leave behind, and are searching for a place where those special items will be appreciated.

The Foundation provides that place where your collections, books, artwork, or other items will always be enjoyed by other cat lovers. At this point in time, we are interested in unique items, original artwork, and cat fancy artifacts to add to the collection.

To donate funds or memorabilia please contact us through our web site, via email, or call the museum and speak to the director about your planned gift. If you wish to include a donation to the CFA Foundation in your estate planning, we'll be happy to provide some direction.

When you do decide to part with your collectibles, the Feline Historical Museum would be honored to be the permanent caretaker of your historical and treasured cat collection. Please contact us about your collection - Donations of materials can be sent to: The CFA Foundation, 260 East Main Street Alliance, OH 44601
