Your support makes the difference!

The Florence Griswold Museum flourishes with the support of our community.

Your tax-deductible gift funds the cost of such essential needs as:

  • Museum Collection and Exhibitions (research, collection care, conservation, special exhibits, and publications)
  • Educational Programs for all Ages (school programs, summer camp scholarships, lectures, workshops, education center activities, and much more)
  • Serving the Community (free admission days, festivals, community-based events, and offsite presentations)
  • Museum Facilities & Grounds (stewardship of historic buildings, care of beautiful gardens and grounds, and technology needs)

Thank you for taking the Museum to new heights of innovation and community service!
