About_This_Organization Chartered in 1985, the Greater Astoria Historical Society is a non-profit organization supported by the Greater Astoria/Long Island City communities, dedicated to preserving our past and using it to promote our future. Our work to procure, preserve and present relates to the natural, civil, literary and ecclesiastical history of the United States and State of New York in general, and the Astoria/Long Island City, Queens, area in particular. In addition to an onsite museum of our permanent collection and rotating exhibits, the Society hosts staff and guests lectures, art exhibits, book signings, walking tours, films and special programs for the public and to local organizations and schools. Business Planning - Fundraising planning The Greater Astoria Historical Society was established in 1985. At the end of last year we lost our location, in the heart of a local transportation hub (which housed our collections, exhibit/lecture space, and administrative offices in one location) when the owner abruptly, with a 90-day notice, emptied our building for redevelopment. This move, denying us the ability to adequately plan, disrupted our financial underpinnings on three levels: (1) collections, now all but inaccessible and languishing in expensive storage vaults, make access to resources used for quality programming more costly and difficult, (2) lost lecture and exhibit space not only curtails the scope of programming but must be replaced with more expensive temporary space that is often available at inconvenient times and locations, and (3) rental income from sub-leasing excess space, used to offset our rental costs, is now lost. We are looking for assistance to help us establish a fund raising plan for corporate, foundation and community grants to reestablish a location which incorporates all the dimensions and advantages of our previous site (lecture /exhibit space, archival space and our administrative offices conveniently located to transportation) as well as additional funding to accommodate the anticipated growth of the community. Both government studies and media report that our community, Long Island City, is the fastest growing neighborhood in the country. We must prepare to meet the escalating needs of these new inhabitants. Astoria, Long Island City has just been named one of the 10 best places to live in the United States. Our organization is the safe keeper of the stories and artifacts of the people who once lived here. We have received accolades for our education programs and for our creative programming capturing a younger audience to history. Funding sources will allow us not only to continue our programs but opportunities to present history in a new and exciting way for future generations. As we have just moved to a new location, we have already started to meet and form partnerships with new community and school groups. Additionally our board is 100% behind this project and is committed to put in the time and manpower to carry out the suggestions. This project can be done remotely.
