2020 Annual Fund Campaign 

Our Goal this year is $50,000!

Staying Strong in 2020

As we end 2020, we look back on a challenging yet eventful year. The steady and generous support from our members and friends helped us sustain and build upon our accomplishments.

2020 Highlights

Educating All Ages
We launched two virtual exhibits and created an online learning platform. A new Folsom Tavern & Grounds tour was offered as an outdoor, socially-distanced experience.

Historic Building Improvements
New garden beds installed at the Ladd Gilman House.

Education & Public Programs
Our popular Revolutionary Story Time and annual American Independence Festival went virtual. A socially-distanced outdoor concert series rounded out our season this fall.

We are also looking forward to 2021.

Inspire Civic Engagement
Continue to partner with state and local organizations to highlight civil discourse and engagement.

Expand our Community
Plan new virtual exhibitions, tours and expand collections research to ensure that we are presenting the latest scholarship.

Celebrate our Anniversary
2021 marks the 300th anniversary of the Ladd-Gilman House and the 30th anniversary of the American Independence Museum.

Your gift now to the Annual Fund Campaign will help the Museum raise critical and essential operating support to continue our important work.
