The Museum’s First Fundraising Event – “The Wall”

Nationals boothA booth was set up at the JRTCA National Trial in Boonsboro, Maryland October 13-15, 2017.  Hundreds of people visited the booth, and over $12,000 was raised in donations!  Jack Batzer, Wayne May, Sally Hickey, Patty Kupcyzk and others manned the booth throughout the weekend, talking to many interested Jack Russell owners.

The “WALL” was set up by Wayne & Nita May, with donor envelopes from $1 to $200.  Approximately 60% of the envelopes were sponsored!  The WALL will continue until all envelopes are gone; when every envelope has been spoken for, a total of $20,000 will have been raised to start up the Museum!  These much-needed funds will be the basis of getting the Museum started, along with the physical donations we have received.

Coming Soon

The Jack Russell Terrier Museum & Crawford Library is physically located at 10534 York Road in Hunt Valley, Maryland.  It is currently being developed, and is planned to be open for visiting in early 2018. We are incorporated and approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Although not yet ready for physical viewing, you can become an important part of the project now! Many donations are needed, both financial and collectibles to fill the Museum. Your donation today will help to preserve and protect the true working Jack Russell Terrier as registered by the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America (JRTCA) and the Jack Russell Terrier Club of Great Britain (JRTCGB) and its many affiliated clubs throughout the world.

By contributing you will also help us to enhance our ability to educate the general public about this very special terrier and all its attributes, and distinguish it from the “variants” that have been registered by the Kennel Club.

Your contribution will also preserve the legacy of Ailsa & Den Crawford, the original founders of the JRTCA, and its early beginnings where they envisioned a unique club of terrier enthusiasts that would preserve the heritage of the true working Jack Russell Terrier as it was originally developed.
