Annual Fund


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 run our efficient $3.8 million annual program. Thank you in advance for this generous endorsement of our mission.

2017 has brought many dynamic programs to the Museum thanks to dedicated members and visitors like you. Projects and programs included the opening of the blockbuster exhibition, Thou Shalt Knot: Clifford W. Ashley, the launch of Curator of Maritime History, Michael P. Dyer’s opus O’er the Wide and Tractless Sea: Original Art of the Yankee Whale Hunt, and the development of a marine science program for New Bedford 4th graders.  

You can help us continue to fulfil our mission of creating multifaceted programming for generations of New Bedford residents and visitors from all over the world by making a contribution to the 2017 Annual Fund today. Why support the Annual Fund? Because you care about:

  • Engaging with our cultural heritage
  • Creating educational experiences
  • Promoting marine mammal conservation
  • Shaping tomorrow’s leaders

Donations are fully tax-deductible. Gifts over $100 will be recognized in the Annual Report.

Thank you for your support!
