Please Help Friends of Mt. Zion Institute

By

FOMZII don’t recall ever asking for donations of any kind in the seven years of SCREnews.com, but I would like to ask that you consider a donation to help preserve the Mt. Zion Institute campus in Winnsboro, SC. Mt. Zion Institute sits on a site that was first improved with an educational use in 1777. The existing school buildings, which were built in 1936, have stood closed and silent since 1991. I would like to ask that you consider helping the Friends of Mt. Zion Institute (FOMZI) with the renovation/preservation of the school.

Midlands Gives is Central Carolina Community Foundation’s online resource that connects donors with nonprofit organizations like FOMZI. Funds donated during Midlands Gives will go directly to the on-going stabilization of the Mt. Zion auditorium chimney and roof to stop rain infiltration that is damaging the interior of this 1936 landmark facility. A 3-story classroom building was done in 2014 and the auditorium is the next big step. FOMZI is a third of the way there with funding at this time.

Midlands Gives provides a secure online portal to help save this piece of history. You can help by clicking HERE.
