Give to the endowment and/or in memory or honor of a beloved family member. Gifts to the endowment are an investment in the museum's future as they fund the museum in perpetuity. The interest from endowment funds supports the museum operation on a yearly basis; half of the interest is reinvested every year to grow the fund.
Make a memorial gift or gift in honor of a special person. These gifts, unless otherwise instructed, go directly into our Endowment funds which support the museum in perpetuity. We have endowment funds for education and school and youth programming as well as endowment funds to support the collections and historic buildings.
The Animal Fund
Adopt a Farm Animal! A gift to the animal fund goes directly toward the annual feed, hay, and veterinary costs to keep our farm animals happy and healthy. All donors are invited to a special up close and personal farm animal tour.
One of the highlights of a visit to the New Hampshire Farm Museum for children and adults alike is a farm animal tour. Now, we invite you to “adopt” a farm animal, providing critical financial help with food, bedding, and veterinary care. Click on The Farm Animals button to find out more about the animals we currently have here at the Farm Museum. As we add to our livestock program, with an emphasis on heritage breeds that were common in early New England farming, we will introduce them to you and add them to our adoption program.
Adopt one sheep at $20/month; $240/year
Adopt the flock! $100/month; $1200/year
Adopt one goat at $15/month; $180/year
