Sage bequeaths funds to Museum of Bus Transportation

Posted on December 28, 2007

The late George M. Sage, founder of Bonanza Bus Lines Inc., bequeathed $500,000 to the Museum of Bus Transportation in Hershey, Pa. The sum is the largest single one-time gift to the museum, according to its President Tom Collins.  

Collins added that the museum’s board of directors will use the funds to pay off the mortgage on its recently purchased storage facility and invest the balance in an annuity, and that the funds will enable the Museum to establish a firm financial plan for the future.  

“This comes to you with great hope for the future of the Museum of Bus Transportation, as well as being a tangible sign of George’s never ending passion for the bus industry,” said Sage’s widow, Barbara H. Sage.  

Sage was instrumental in several Museum projects in 2006, including the selection and purchase of the storage garage.
