THE STRAWBERY BANKE FUND
Make a gift of $1,000 or more and become a member of the 1630 Society.
Strawbery Banke Museum relies on your generosity and support. In a normal year, the revenue that the museum receives from admissions and events does not cover operating costs.
With the added impact of COVID-19, the museum has significantly reduced prospects for income as the fiscal year comes to a close. To ensure the museum meets its fundraising goals, the Board of Trustees of Strawbery Banke Museum has generously stepped forward with a challenge to other Strawbery Banke supporters.
For the month of March only, every dollar given will be matched, up to $25,000.
- If you haven’t yet given, your annual gift this month will be doubled.
- If you gave earlier in the year, an additional gift, in any amount, will be doubled, and also ensure that we meet this generous challenge.
- If you have never given this is an opportunity to double your impact with your tax-deductible gift.
Additionally, attend "Behind the Curtain: Strawbery Banke Revealed" (a virtual event) on Thursday, March 25, 2021, at 7 PM, to experience inspiring stories firsthand from staff, supporters, and the community as Strawbery Banke reveals the work that went on behind the scenes in 2020 to continue to position the museum in 2021 and beyond.
