Our supporters, all 3,000 strong, lift this organization on their shoulders every year. You, and others who care about our mission, donate 65% of the total funds needed to support our work each year. Thank you in advance for this generous endorsement of our mission.
2018 has brought many dynamic programs to the Museum thanks to dedicated members and visitors like you. These include the opening of the companion blockbuster exhibitions, A Spectacle in Motion: The Original, an innovative display of the entire 1,275 foot Grand Panorama of a Whaling Voyage ‘Round the World, as well as A Spectacle in Motion: The Experience, a digital exhibition of the Panorama off the bow of our half-scale whaleship model the Lagoda. Additional highlights from the past year include the Apprenticeship Program receiving two national awards for excellence, the expansion of Captain Paul Cuffe Park, and a renewed focus on marine mammal conservation and whale ecology, which will culminate in the landmark Whales Today exhibition opening this December.
You can help us continue to fulfill our mission of creating multifaceted programming for generations of New Bedford residents and visitors from around the world by making a contribution to the 2018 Annual Fund today. Why support the Annual Fund? Because you care about:
- Championing the Southcoast’s Unique History
- Highlighting community ties through compelling cultural experiences
- Promoting environmental stewardship
- Developing tomorrow’s leaders
Donations are fully tax-deductible. Gifts over $100 will be recognized in the Annual Report.
Thank you for your support!
