David Goudy Warm Welcome Endowment Fund

Help us meet the challenge! A generous Montshire supporter has committed to a gift of $150,000, but we need to raise a 1:1 match over the next 18 months! We're half-way there, and we need your support! Please make a gift and select "David Goudy Warm Welcome Endowment" as your designation.


Individuals make contributions to the Montshire Museum for a variety of reasons. If you are a member, perhaps you have come to appreciate what the Montshire offers to your community and wish to provide additional support. Would you like to make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one? Do you live too far away to enjoy the benefits of membership? Or, are you interested in supporting a particular project or program, such as Montshire’s scholarship fund or endowment? Your gift of any size will make a real difference.

Waiving membership benefits means that your entire contribution supports the Montshire’s mission, and the full amount of your gift is tax-deductible.


Many foundations, large and small, contribute to the Montshire’s operations, special projects, or capital improvements. Gifts may be made online or in consultation with the Museum’s Director of Development. Please call 802-649-2200, ext. 225, to talk about your interests and the community’s needs.


The Montshire welcomes support from businesses and corporations. In addition to participation in the Montshire Corporate Associates, there are opportunities to sponsor events, programs and exhibitions. Please call 802-649-2200, ext. 225, to discuss mutually beneficial options.
