Carl R. Nold Fund for Museum Education

School and youth programs serve Historic New England’s most diverse audience, but these programs, which engage 45,000 children each year, are underfunded. Many students can participate only because Historic New England subsidizes transportation and program fees.

Ensure that our commitment to school and youth programming continues in perpetuity by supporting the Carl R. Nold Fund for Museum Education, a permanent endowment fund. Your generosity will help inspire the next generation of lifelong learners.

This fund honors Historic New England President and CEO Carl R. Nold, who recently announced his retirement.

“I came to museum work from a background in both history and education. I’ve long believed that unless they are shared, even the finest collections have little value to the public. Engaging young people through educational activities ensures that museums, collections, and our shared stories have a future.” – Carl R. Nold

Each year, schools pay for less than half of the $600,000 Historic New England spends to provide school and youth programming. A gift of any size will impact the life of a student year after year.
