Valley Gives Day 5.3.16
Donate to Historic Northampton on Valley Gives Day
and your donation will fund collections care.
Valley Gives Day is 5.3.16 and our baskets need your help! As we cleaned and re-organized collections storage areas this winter, we brought up more than 120 baskets and mats from a dark corner on open shelves in the Damon House basement at 46 Bridge Street. The range is marvelous: pieces made of wicker, pine needle, birch bark, or splits of wood; suitcases, satchels, hampers, yarn, and even a wicker coffin!
What is Valley Gives Day?
Valley Gives Day is a 24-hour online giving day that takes place on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. It is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.
What will my donation do?
Your donation will fund collections care of the basket collection: archival quality storage boxes, professional conservation, research and documentation.
Why a giving day?
Over 350 non-profit organizations participate. The Community Foundation amplifies donations with prizes and golden tickets from sponsors. Together, Valley Gives Day 2014 raised over $2 million for area non-profit organizations.
