  • $2,500 provides a specially priced membership to 25 families
  • $1,000 provides five summer camp scholarships
  • $500 offers 40 people free admission passes, distributed through agencies like the Upper Valley Haven or Listen Community Services
  • $250 helps support a community outreach program in a local school or community center
  • $100 provides 10 low-income people with a Montshire Museum visit 


Silent Auction

You can Fund a Program during the Silent Auction by making a gift to support Montshire's education programs. Give to youth development, early childhood education, or Montshire's School Partnership Initiative, which strengthens the infrastructure for science education in our region's schools.

My boys LOVE the Montshire. This is such a great place for kids and the auction is a fun way to celebrate and give back to this amazing organization.  Maribel Souther
