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.
