Advocates for the Archives


The Advocates for the Archives (AFTA) supports the CSU Archives in its mission to document and preserve the history and culture of Columbus and the broader Chattahoochee Valley area. Our annual giving program, funded by member contributions, provides us with critical support for ensuring our collections are preserved for future generations including sending documents to specialized conservation labs for treatment when needed.

Everyone is invited to become an advocate by contributing to the annual giving program. Please consider joining us; your donation is an investment in history. All contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
