Renasant Bank Pledges $20,000 To Help Fund The Mississippi Museum of the American Indian
Renasant Bank has pledged $20,000 to help fund the Mississippi Museum of the American Indian. The proposed museum will be a premier facility of more than 12,000 square feet to be built on the southwest corner of the downtown square in Kosciusko Mississippi. Naming rights of the retail space inside the museum will be part of the pledge made by Renasant Bank.
“We are so thankful for Renasant Bank and their support. The museum will provide an educational and historic look into the American Indian culture locally and throughout Mississippi. We look forward to providing students, locals and those traveling our area from all over the world the opportunity to explore and learn more about this fascinating history,” says Darren Milner, Executive Director, Kosciusko Attala Partnership.
“Renasant Bank has always been very community oriented and opportunities to be part of such an impactful project like this do not come around that often. The museum will have a huge economic impact on our community, and we look forward to being part of it and the great experience it will bring for so many people,” says Justin Develin, Market President, Renasant Bank-Kosciusko.
The Mississippi Museum of the American Indian will be an authentic, educational and cultural experience as visitors travel along the journey of native american peoples from prehistoric to modern times throughout Mississippi.
The City of Kosciusko invites you to make your pledge now to build an historic museum that will house a fascinating collection of American Indian artifacts and archives, while providing information about the life of Native Americans and their journeys in our great state. The museum will be built on the Southwest Corner of the beautiful historic downtown square in Kosciusko for the world to explore only a few blocks from the original Natchez Trace. The American Indian culture is so much a part of our Mississippi heritage and will be a major stop along a larger path of museums inviting everyone to visit Mississippi. Please make your pledge now by choosing a level below or providing an individual custom pledge.

We have received $1,000,000 from the State of Mississippi as part of the initial funding towards this $4.8 million museum project. We are asking for your pledge to help us continue our progress. We are working to raise an additional $1 million dollars plus in pledges by July 2020. Pledges will not be called upon, until we have raised our funding. At that time, your pledge will be payable over a two year period. Not only does your pledge show a commitment to the history and preservation of American Indian Artifacts and their History, it is a pledge of community support for the State of Mississippi. We look forward to making the Mississippi Museum of the American Indian a reality for the world to enjoy. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PLEDGE.
