Pickerington motorcycle museum creating endowment
One of Pickerington's prime attractions is revving up a campaign intended to maintain and expand its most popular programs.
The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum announced last week it has initiated an endowment to provide permanent support for its exhibition series. For the effort, the museum has partnered with the Columbus Foundation with the goal of building a $5-million fund over the next five years.
"Our exhibitions are one of the best things we do, based on what our guests have told us," said Mark Mederski, executive director of the museum. "This endowment will ensure that we can continue to offer that to them."
The museum traditionally funds its exhibits, which document the history of motorcycling, as well as motorcycling's contribution to American heritage, through sponsorships and private donations.
