Rancho Obi-Wan, Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is member supported and does not receive funds from any national organizations, government grants, or loans. Funds raised are used for essential operating expenses such as insurance, utilities, professional services, maintenance on the buildings, rent of warehouse space, and protection and preservation of the collection. None are used to acquire collectibles.
As a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, we have had to cancel all live events for 2020, including guided tours of the museum, and our annual Fundraising Gala. This significant loss of revenue makes it a difficult challenge to raise the necessary funds required to meet our operating expenses.
Your patronage will make it possible for Rancho Obi-Wan to continue to educate and inspire people by sharing the wonders of the collection online through the new Virtual Museum. Frankly, our very existence depends on your generous support. Thank you very kindly.
