Join KHS Now!

The Kununurra Historical Society was inaugurated on June 5th 1986, and in 2016 we commemorated 30 years as a Society and 15 years in the ('new' ;^) purpose-built Archive and Museum facility. You will be supporting the valuable work being accomplished to collect and preserve the records of our past, and be kept in touch with the fascinating history being placed online. Perhaps you have photographs or other archival material you'd like to see preserved in our purpose-built archive facility (In 2015 there were 189 new archives - 127 new collections in 2016 and 70 new collections that have been added to the KHS archive to June 20th 2017). Please join us at KHS from the Membership Form and KHS (BSB & A/C) Bank Details provided below. (You will be helping to preserve this history & make it accessible to all! TIA :^) 
 In June 2017 we have 125 members, most being spread around Australia with about 20 local members, of whom around 10 members regularly attend our monthly meetings, with only one member actively carrying out all work on the archive and opening the Kununurra Museum. We are in need of new members and as Kununurra has had many more than this live here over the fifty-five+ years of the town, who would be interested in this history, so the potential for new members is high.

 Government funding for heritage generally has been slashed, and in spite of our isolation, we must crowd-source our own funding and my hope and aim is for KHS to have 1000 members and I am hoping that past and present residents of Kununurra can see through the online content we are making accessible to all, the great value in preserving a local research collection and all associated with that by supporting us and joining KHS as Life Members (10 x annual membership).

 To all past and present residents, we NEED your Support! If you like what you see, even if you have just visited and the experience left a good impression, or you were helped to find some history from your visit to the Kununurra Museum, you can support this work to continue - Please Join KHS Now (fill in the form below).

WANTED! 1,000 Philanthropists (to Support future KHS Work :^)

 We hope from what you have seen of KHS online presence to date, that KHS is a worthy cause to promise $50 per year? Can you afford to commit to providing $50 per year over four years as a regular donation? By committing to an annual donation of $50 per year over four years, you would be assisting for this great work to continue and increase.

 If we had 1000 donors and each could donate $25-50 per year, this would be more than enough to provide a paid position for the person currently carrying out all work for the Society on the archival collections and to continue actively collecting, as well as enough to employ people part-time for grant funding submissions or as required for the important work of actively collecting and preserving our history, of local, State and National significance, to be able to continue.  

 If you can afford to, your donation would be greatly appreciated (and tax deductible as KHS is a DGR :^) and you would be assisting and part of efforts to continue supporting the important work done by KHS to actively collect and preserve a local history research repository.
[All donations are fully tax deductible as KHS has 'Deductible Gift Recipient' (DGR) status with the Australian Taxation Office.]

 You can go to the form below on this page to get KHS BSB & A/C details to donate directly or you can keep track of all of your donations at the KHS GiveNow page from >> https://www.givenow.com.au/khs

 You can go to our  Membership Form and KHS (BSB & A/C) Bank Details to donate directly or you can keep track of all of your donations at the KHS GiveNow page https://www.givenow.com.au/khs

 KHS is offering an annual membership, however we encourage ALL Past & Present Residents of Kununurra, being part of (y)our history, to join as Life Members (equal to 10 x an annual membership) to support the work of the Society, continuously receive updates, avoid messy renewals every year (for us & for you ;^) and as the best value for money.
(I forgot to say in this page's title, "Please!" Join KHS Now ;^)

Your Records of Significance

  Whether you are an individual, family, organization or business, and have records of significance to the history of the Ord, please consider their future preservation, in the Kununurra Historical Society purpose built Archive facility. It is of great importance to preserve Kununurra's history, with an ever transient population, the KHS is actively seeking to collect, original or digital photographic collections, and documents, of significance to this history, from past, present and future residents. However small your collection it may be of significance, for example a photograph may give a new angle on something. KHS aims to preserve and welcome the original photographic prints or slides, films, videos, documents or other objects in collections. These donated records can also be digitised to a high standard (at present 5500 pixels on the long side of an image) and returned as fully documented digital images to the donor on a USB memory stick, SD card (or other existing or as yet un-described storage device of the future ;^) - If archival preservation is not wanted, original collections can be digitised and returned to the donor, if required. If you know of records that should be preserved for the future, please  Contact KHS - ALSO see - Your Kununurra History.
