Options for Giving

As a lover of history, you are key to Fall River Historical Society’s enduring vitality.

Your gift, no matter what its size, will strengthen the foundation of the organization and help to secure it for generations to come.

While gifts to any of our designated areas for giving are welcome, our current priority is to increase the size of our Endowment Fund, which is underfunded at present. As a small museum, the FRHS struggles to secure unrestricted income; as such, we are actively seeking contributions to the Endowment Fund from individual donors, foundations, and corporations.

You may also opt to make a gift to our Annual Fund, where it will be directed to the area of greatest need, or you may specifically designate how your donation will be used by selecting from a variety of options.

Contributions to the FRHS, a 501c3 non-profit organization currently operating as a Public Charity, are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
