  • Will you consider a gift to Gore Place’s Annual Fund ?

     

    What is the Annual Fund for Gore Place?
    The Annual Fund is our yearly campaign to raise unrestricted operating support.

     

    Why does Gore Place need an Annual Fund ?
    The modest admission we charge for programs is not enough to pay for the present and future needs of the mansion, farm and grounds. So we ask friends like you to support us through the Annual Fund.

     

    Is Gore Place a nonprofit?
    Yes! Our nonprofit status means your Annual Fund donation is tax deductible.

     

    How will Gore Place use my gift?
    Your gift to the Annual Fund will help us carry out Gore Place’s mission in many different ways. To mention just a few, your gift will help us:
    Care for the Gores’ mansion and preserve and protect its collections.
    Maintain the estate and return the grounds to the way they looked in the early 1800s.
    Develop special new programs for you and your family to enjoy.
    Feed our sheep and chickens!

    Any amount helps. We’re grateful for every gift.
