Giving Tuesday – Nov 29

When you make a contribution of $100 or more to the Museum on Giving Tuesday, your gift goes far. You can to select a library to receive a transferable Fairbanks Membership that could be used by patrons throughout the year. “We’ll match each gift we receive with a gift to a local library,” says Adam Kane, executive director. “Membership means you can visit the Museum and enjoy a planetarium presentation at no charge, and a Library Membership means your neighbors and friends can enjoy the galleries, exhibits, and planetarium shows.”

“We were delighted to support local libraries. There are over 150 public libraries in Vermont and northern New Hampshire,” adds Kane, “and Giving Tuesday gives us a chance to give back to communities. We look forward to welcoming new visitors with these passes.” Library patrons can use these memberships to visit the galleries and take in a planetarium presentation any day throughout the year. “For many families, that’s a significant savings,” says Rubin. Libraries also receive the Museums print calendar and newsletter, as well as invitations to events and openings.

The Museum also gives back by donating memberships to help other nonprofits with auctions and raffles. “Giving part of our commitment to community,” says director of external relations Anna Rubin. “This Museum is dedicated to healthy communities, and we support many nonprofits in Vermont and northern New Hampshire.”

Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to philanthropy that encourages giving to community and international nonprofits around the world.
