A Tremendous Thank You!!!

Thank you for your tremendous support and for sharing our posts and information on social media!

Together we raised more than $28,000 to help Rancho Obi-Wan in our spring fundraising campaign. Every dollar raised from 400+ donors and 20+ individual fundraisers supports our mission to inspire kids—and the kid in all of us—by sparking the imagination and creativity that makes Star Wars the worldwide phenomenon that it remains after nearly 40 years.

Your continuing support helps fund the operation of the museum including the preservation of collectibles and documentation for future generations, lets us give free educational tours to schools, allows us to donate tours to other charities for their own fundraisers, and helps support traveling exhibits of specially curated objects.
None of the funds raised goes to acquire or ship collectibles so we would also like to thank those who have recently donated pieces to the museum.

In the U.S., your donations are tax-deductible (check with your tax advisor), but the worldwide care and backing for our mission is priceless. This is our fifth year operating as a nonprofit and we continue booking tours and events, but we will always need your help to keep the lights on and our mission moving.
The Force is truly strong with you all!

Our best regards,

Steve Sansweet, CEO
Anne Neumann, General Manager
Our Board of Directors and Staff
