Membership and Support
Historic New England relies on members and supporters to provide funding that enables us to continue William Sumner Appleton’s mission of preserving and sharing New England’s rich cultural heritage.
One third of Historic New England’s institutional operating budget is funded through contributions and grants. Giving options include individual gifts, donations of stock or property, planned gifts such as charitable gift annuities or bequests, and foundation, corporate, and grant support.
Tax-deductible donations can provide general operating support or be designated to specific historic sites, programs, or teams.
Join us in preserving, understanding, and celebrating the cultural heritage of New England. We invite you to become a member, participate in programs and activities that celebrate New England’s rich cultural history, and support preservation work in the region. Members receive free admission to our thirty-six historic properties, publications, discounts, and advance notice of programs and events.
