There are many ways to give to the Concord Museum. Contributions of much-needed funds, time and expertise volunteered, and gifts of treasured objects all help us to achieve our mission and keep the Museum a vibrant and distinguished institution.


Ways to Give

Contribute to the Annual Fund
Gifts to the Annual Fund are not only critical to the daily operations of the Museum but also help sustain our changing exhibitions, public and family programming, and educational initiatives. The Annual Fund provides the Museum with unrestricted funds that make up 30% of the Museum’s operating budget each year. Your gift of any amount is very much appreciated as every contribution helps the Museum.

Donors join the Lantern Society, the Museum’s leadership giving circle, with a gift of $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund.

The Concord Museum’s Annual Fund directly supports:

  • Keeping the Museum open to the public 362 days a year for over 40,000 visitors annually
  • The Museum’s acclaimed and content-rich school programs, experienced by over 13,000 schoolchildren each year
  • The preservation of the Museum’s collection of 35,000 cherished objects representing our nation’s heritage
  • Changing exhibitions, offering life-long learning on a variety of subjects that link Concord’s past to the present
  • A year-round calendar of public programs and events for visitors of all ages
