The White Whale at the New Bedford Whaling Museum

Annual Fund

There is little doubt that 2014 was an exceptional year for the Whaling Museum. The concurrent accomplishments of breaking ground on the Wattles Jacobs Education Center and spearheading the homecoming of the Charles W. Morgan amply demonstrate the Museum's role as a catalyst for community revitalization and investment. On top of these achievements, trustees have elected to double the Apprenticeship Program, restore the Grand Panorama of a Whaling Voyage 'Round the World, and engage deeply with the local school system.

We could not accomplish this mission without the deep commitment of our members, donors, volunteers, and trustees.

 We hope that you too will invest in the Museum’s future and help us to interpret and preserve the past with a gift to the 2014 Annual Fund. Donations are fully tax-deductible. Gifts over $100 will be recognized in the Annual Report.

Thank you for your support!
