Your unrestricted, ongoing support gives the Museum the ability to sustain and enhance our impact through hands-on history, teacher support, public forums, new exhibits, access to our collections, and more.
Leadership giving circles recognize philanthropic contributors who sustain our programs through unrestricted gifts of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, and $25,000+. Lantern Society members receive invitations to special events and all the benefits of Museum membership.
Our newest patron group, launched in 2023, provides people under 55 with the opportunity to be the next generation of Museum leaders through invitations to unique programs and events throughout the year.
Education at the Concord Museum offers hands-on, object-based experiential learning at the museum and in their classrooms. Through the Paul Revere’s Ride Fund, the Museum partners with underserved public school systems to offer high quality field trips for educators and students.
The Concord Museum’s recurring gift program allows you to maximize gifts to the Annual Fund in automatic monthly increments through credit card, debit card, or checking accounts to sustain our programs in a critical, reliable, and meaningful way.
Annual Fund gifts in honor or in memory of an individual can celebrate that individual’s passion for the Concord Museum, history, the American literary tradition, arts and culture, and so much more.
When you leave a charitable gift in your will, trust, or by beneficiary designation, you become a sustaining part of our mission. The 1886 Society recognizes donors who have notified the Concord Museum of their intentions to leave a legacy gift through their estate and financial plans to keep making history for future generations.

Corporate Engagement and Foundation Giving
The Concord Museum seeks institutional partners interested in sponsoring events and programs, accelerating our aspirational goals, and increasing access to our resources. We offer engagement space, exhibitions, forums, and other opportunities for employees and the community.
Matching gifts can double, and sometimes triple, the impact of your gift. Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their active and retired employees. Request matching gift eligibility and instructions through your company’s human resources department.
