For All Time

National Watch and Clock Collectors, Inc.'s
75th Anniversary Endowment and Capital Campaign

Now Is the Time...

For All Time is a $7.5 million fundraising initiative to shape the future of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) for our society, communities, and members. This historic campaign is your opportunity to invest in our future. The magnitude of our goal reflects the breadth of our aspiration: to ensure the ongoing presence of the Museum and the Library, to educate future generations, and to enhance an already extraordinary Association. For All Time will strengthen and transform our capabilities in five strategic areas:

   •   The National Watch and Clock Museum: Expand and enhance access to the largest and most comprehensive international collection in the Americas devoted to timekeeping and timepieces.

   •   The Library and Research Center: Expand and enhance access to the largest professionally staffed public library and archives in the world dedicated to time and timekeeping.

   •   Education: Use the skills and knowledge of horologists to reach new audiences, increase access, provide relevant instruction, and promote enhanced interaction.

   •   The NAWCC: Promote research and scholarship to fund the programs that encourage and stimulate interest in the art and science of horology.

   •   Capital Improvements: Upgrade the Museum, Library, and Association facilities and technologies in Columbia, Pennsylvania, to enable ongoing first-rate delivery of services.

The NAWCC, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) charitable education organization. Donations are eligible for US Federal income tax deduction.

Endowment funds are maintained in perpetuity with the investment income providing designated ongoing support.

The magnitude of our goal reflects the breadth of our aspiration: build upon an extraordinary Association and achieve unprecedented impact.

Power of Partnership

This is your campaign. The Board of Directors initiated the campaign and fully supports its goals, but the success of our campaign depends on you. Since its beginning in 1943 the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors evolved to become the largest horological organization in the world and the respected worldwide leader in horology. We cannot bask in our achievements or ignore the future but must be committed now more than ever to strengthen our ability to preserve, encourage, and stimulate interest in the art, heritage, and science of timekeeping. Our goal is one that, working together, we can and must achieve.
