Your Gift Directly Affects Our Ability to Fulfill Our Mission

As we all do our part to safeguard ourselves and each other during these unexpected times, we take stock in looking toward the future. Although it may be trying now, it is comforting to know that as a community we can get through this together.

We’d like to take this opportunity to ask you, our community, for help. This is a critical time for cultural intuitions. Special places that provide experience, discovery and engagement, are in trouble. Your generous gift will ensure that Heritage’s legacy of providing connection to nature, culture and each other will continue. The dollars you donate will keep this mission going, keep our gardens thriving, preserve, protect and make accessible our collections, and keep the dedicated individuals who keep all of what makes Heritage unique, employed. We are proud of Heritage and hope you are, too. It is an important place that provides something for each member of the family, of every age and ability.

Please consider donating today. Know that there are many ways to give and each gift is cherished. We are inspired and humbled by you and your generous consideration. From our hearts, we thank you.


Annual Fund

Every year, funds provided by generous donors to the Annual Fund are immediately put to work at Heritage Museums & Gardens, providing vital support for educational programs, family memory making, and preservation. Gifts of cash, check, credit cards, and securities of all sizes are welcome and appreciated.

Monthly giving is an easy and efficient way for donors to regularly contribute to the Annual Fund and make a difference year-round. Any gift can be a recurring monthly gift; simply select the monthly gift option on the form and your credit or debit card will be automatically charged each month.

Would you like to make your charitable dollars go further? Many companies provide Employee Matching Gifts that can amplify contributions made by their associates and retirees. Please check with your employer for opportunities to increase the impact of your gift.
